A: A Pennsylvania attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. It does not seem like something that an attorney would handle as anything other than an hourly basis, and you probably don't want that. This issue is occurring nationwide and children are having difficulty with online resources and parents are frustrated. More than legal recourses, it might be better to focus on finding helpful learning resources, either through the school system or online on your own. If the learning materials are developed through commercial contractors, look into whether they have helplines, tutorials, or other customer service resources. You could check with a local attorney to discuss if they see things differently. Good luck
