Only 1 teacher has agreed to work with my daughter to correct her grade. She was doing well before having to work on-line. She was not aware her teachers were not receiving her assignments and discussions thru the college system Blackboard. She received check-marks and assumed that meant she was... Read more »
At this point, you may be better off reaching out to attorneys in the Education Law section (or attorneys you find on your own) instead of continuing to wait for a reply. If your daughter has academic advisors who are sympathetic, it could be worthwhile to reach out to them to discuss as well....Read more »
My wife is a teacher and her school (private) has installed cameras in the classroom to record her teaching and broadcast it for parents and students to watch. Is this legal? Should the school have consent from her or do they not need consent to do this? Don't the parents of the children need... Read more »
The private school does not need the consent of your wife to have cameras in the classroom to record activity. While it would be preferable to get her consent, consent is not required. The same goes for the students.
My stepson called DYFS and they now have an open case. This man went on and beat her and ended up in jail for DV. She initially filed a restraining order to boot. She then reneged and continued the relationship with him. He convinced her to drop the order and her charges. The state of NJ still has... Read more »
This is not an Education Law Question. This should be in Family Law and/or Criminal Law. Education deals with School districts, tenure etc. Please re-post in proper group to get a proper and accurate response.
Our university has asked students to sign a waiver in order to return to campus in the fall. Those who sign the waiver relinquish their rights to sue the university or claim compensation if they get sick and/or die of COVID-19. Failure to sign the waiver means a student will have their student... Read more »
You raise good questions, but the validity of the waiver might be something requiring the ruling of a court. As a general premise, waivers against injury tend to be frowned upon by courts as a matter of public policy. Another issue is that even if a waiver was upheld, lawsuits based on COVID-19...Read more »
The high school by my house has a sign allowing people to use the track for exercise and dog walking. I use the track in the summer when schools out. Usually at 11:00pm-1:00am, so I like to have a firearm on me. Is this allowed since the school is closed for several months, and it’s in the... Read more »
No. See NRS 202.265. This statute does not have an exception for the time of day. The track is part of school property for any Nevada public school I know about. You can face a criminal charge for being on school property with a gun at any time. It's a gross misdemeanor, and you can face up to...Read more »
As many student are concern here is that we know in our part 141 flight school is qurentining the student that have it might have the COVID19 in their room but no information are given out to the other healthy student so that we can be more aware ourself.
We considered something similar to that issue some time ago in this post which might guide your research. https://www.studentmisconduct.com/news/what-happens-if-i-tell-my-school-that-i-tested-positive-for-coronavirus-or-covid-19
The short answer is, probably not. Extra curricular activities are not considered to be a part of a student's right to a public K-12 education. It is my understanding that the Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) changed its guidance this last Friday to allow for a case-by-case...Read more »
My husband has paid child support for his son, who is 15 years old, for the last 14 years, as ordered. The mother no longer adheres to the visitation they set In court. The mother refuses to enroll the child in public, private, or homeschool. The child has also been living back and forth between... Read more »
Hello. He has a right to take her back to court and enforce the orders in place for his visitation, school, etc. To answer your question about child support payment adjustment, no. The child is entitled to his parent's financial support until he is 19 years old, joins the military, or becomes...Read more »
Generally, when you resign voluntarily you do not qualify for unemployment insurance. However, under these circumstances, you could still file a claim. If your employer does not contest your claim, you will likely receive unemployment benefits. If the employer does contest your claim, you could...Read more »
I was at university during the spring and once covid took over, I was online, it was difficult for me to resist the temptation to quickly get an answer. I tried my best to learn the material correctly but knowing I could just look it up made it difficult for me to learn properly. I blame covid... Read more »
I don't have a direct answer at all. But, just so you get a sense for how school staff treat students involved in disciplinary actions (these mostly deal with a spectrum of sexual behaviors) check out all that I regularly blog about. You may well come out with a view that whether or not you...Read more »
I am using this for educational matter. A professor left me a telephone voicemail message. Then have dismissed me. I am currently writing an appeal and wondering if I can using and voicemail as an evidence
I am not aware of any prohibition against using the voicemail message as evidence. Wiretap recordings are prohibited because they are made without the knowledge of at least one party to the conversation, but a voicemail is deliberately and knowingly left on a recording device. It is the same as if...Read more »
It depends, on the terms of your contract and the CBA or MOU with the teacher's union for the district. So much more information is needed that it is not possible to provide a more definitive answer. As a member of the teacher's union, you can file a grievance if you believe the...Read more »
With I’m sure toxic glue as it was the 90’s, while the teacher encouraged the class to mock and make fun of me. I want to sue Demotte Elementary School, which is Kankakee Valley School Corp., I’m dead serious and will find representation somewhere. Most of those classmates are still residing... Read more »
It would be best for an Indiana attorney to advise, but you await a response for four weeks. You ask about what type of lawyer? A personal injury lawyer, preferably one with insight into the education system. But you are looking at a very formidable challenge in terms of the timeline here. I'm...Read more »
My social security number, address, photos, transcripts, academic rank and deans letter we’re all accidentally made public through my school’s shared folders. I found out via a current student, and later received an apology from the Dean, as well as an assertion that the problem was fixed.... Read more »
I am sorry to learn of your situation. It seems to me the basic federal law for you to seek remedy is FERPA which you can find here, https://www2.ed.gov/policy/gen/guid/fpco/ferpa/students.html. There's also a mechanism for filing complaints here,...Read more »

I am creating a continuing education program and certification for strength and conditioning coaches and rehabilitation professionals on training and rehab of the throwing athlete.

You should get permission from the copyright holder of the video - could be the videographer or their employer, or ESPN... In my opinion what you are describing would not pass a fair use test. You might also need permission from the athlete in the video, depending on state law.
