Q: Can I request a refund from a school that closed since March due to pandemic?
Private school won't give me refund for my child's language class due to closure since March. They switched to online class, but the teacher didn't contact us prior so we couldn't attend online class, even if we can I don't feel as if the teacher was capable of teaching especially if it's online language to a young child. The school has ignored my requests. Can I pursue further? Thanks in advance for your advice!
Make sure you have put your request for a refund in writing, which will be evidence. File in Small Claims (up to $10,000) and take your case before a judge. There are a lot of posts on this question, and no sure answer. Be sure to review your contract with the school.
