But I continued with the course, after 5 months non stop trying to pass the first assignment, I can't. The only help which I get from my tutor is just... Read more »
This could be a difficult case to pursue because the Academy did provide specific guidelines for withdrawl and refund, and a court could find those to be clear and reasonable. It's up to you, because you probably don't want to continue pouring good money after bad to chase a futile recovery (and...Read more »
It could depend on the school district. Many districts across the nation would let it go, treating it for what it was, an accident.

Yes, the school is within its legal rights to disseminate education to its students through online learning. Requiring students to attend school, in person, could put more students at risk than necessary, so providing online education would not violate any laws.
It appears that this private education company is attempting to avoid possible disaster caused by a bunch of teachers all going out on PTO at the same time; however, the way they are trying to avoid closing down is probably unlawful.

The answer to your question will depend entirely on the terms of your contract. Unless modified by contract your employer has no duty to pay you for periods of time that you are not working due to closure.

You raise a number of good issues; however, I believe it is less complicated. The school must have premises liability to cover any injuries to persons on the premises that are there legally.

You are correct that the compulsory school attendance law does not apply to 18 year olds. It primarily serves as a way for the state to punish parents for their student's truancy. However, each school district has discretionary powers to determine the nature of absences and the requirements for...Read more »
