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.
What can I do to get my student out of taking that class? I don’t care if people want to live in sin but being forced to take a sexual preference choice as history I don’t agree with and it’s against our beliefs.
You can protest to the school &/or the school board. If the school board won't listen to them, work to get the school board members replaced in the next election. Or you can transfer him to another school.

It doesn't appear that the trustee can do that, but one would have to read the trust to be sure. Also, since it appears to be a California trust, you might want to ask a California attorney to take a look at the situation.
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. Look for an experienced employment lawyer who is familiar with...Read more »

If the dispositions of you’re old cases were with hold of adjudication ( as opposed to an adjudication) you may be eligible to seal/expunge them. It’s basically the difference between a misdemeanor conviction or a disposition of the case with no conviction.

You would have to consult with an expert on the laws of China to determine whether your father could "refuse to accept" you. But if your mother has custody of you she can, until you reach the age of majority, require you to take the flight.
The police officer questioned me in school, I wasn't purposesly trying to avoid questions, and she said that was illegal for obstructing justice. I thought there was the 5th amendment? Maybe rights are limited in schools.
