Saint Clairsville, OH asked in Education Law for Ohio

Q: Yesterday my daughter was cornered in school by a cop and the principal. Are they allowed to do this without permission?

My daughter was bullied into confessing to something she didn’t do and the cop tried to bully me into thinking she had no right to ask for me or any other help. He told me I was wrong to tell her that she didn’t have to say anything until I showed up.
