There are a lot of variables here. It would depend on how old the book is whether or not it is still covered by copyright protection, though it likely is. It would also depend on the types of problems you are copying. A simple 2 + 2 would not be an issue, but if you are taking entire paragraphs of...Read more »

With schools just starting to re-open and pressures on districts from Parents regarding both health concerns for safety and getting the students back in school, the schools are going to be over cautious to be sure that any student with even a hint of a symptom is thoroughly vetted.

Our school offers both f2f and virtual. After 6 weeks, it is clear the Virtual platform is not meeting my students needs. My student has an IEP. I Have requested my student return to f2f but have been told I have to wait until the end of the first trimester (end and of November).
Good question, that unfortunately, I don't believe there is a solid answer. I would suggest, as is often the case with school law, that your advocacy will matter. If necessary, the issue should be addressed with the district's special education coordinator or equivalent, or the school board.

I was a high school teacher and created about 50 powerpoint lessons in the school's drive. The school locked me out and will not share my powerpoint lessons. I am of course very upset over this.

This is something that an attorney in Australia would need to advise on. But as a general matter in many legal systems, it would be improper for a school to interfere in an individual's private-based claims. You may want to discuss this with your parents first. Good luck
Interesting question. Answer: It depends on how the teacher presents the discussion about the religion, and there is no limit on what students can talk about among themselves. If the teacher's presentation is for the purpose of discussing a different type of religion, or sensitizing students...Read more »

I’m a high school student in Florida. My teachers are saying that theyre going to require webcams and record us because of online learning. As someone who values their privacy, this is very concerning to me. Is this legal?
While it's generally not legal in Fla. to audio-record someone without their consent, I imagine that the school has made your consent (or your parents' consent on your behalf) a condition of attending the school.
No a 15 year old cannot quit school even with parental consent in the state of Georgia. Mandatory attendance in a public school, private school, or home school program is required for children between 6 yrs and 16 yrs old. The only exception is where the child has successfully completed all...Read more »
