She should try to see if there is a licensing authority in her area where she can appeal to. There are a lot of lawyers that do administrative law. Maybe she can look for a lawyer in her area that practices administrative law and set up a free consultation.

Get family counseling for yourself and your son, if possible.

It is unclear why you are complaining that someone is trying to return your calculator, or why you think this is a legal problem. There is no evidence in your post that your Instructor had your calculator the entire period of time it was missing, or knew that it was yours. You don't explain why...Read more »

If I were you, I would write a statement of how you did your research and writing regarding the particular part you are accused...Read more »

California students may drop out legally once they turn 18. Students who are 16 or 17 may also leave school, but only if they: have their parents' permission, and. pass the California High School Proficiency Exam (which leads to a certificate that's equivalent to a diploma).
