school conflict

Who can I get to help me. My daughter principle dislikes her and is trying to get rid of her at school. I have talk to the Superintendent. And no help there either because the principle is female. I don't know who else can help me. My daughter is not bad she has a mental problem and taking medication for the disorders she are diagnosed with.

If you can get proof of mental disabilty. I would contac a lawyer. People with mental disabilty have laws that protect them for things like this. It's worth 40 50 $ to talk to a lawyer for these things..Chris

I have talk that severals lawyer and I would have to. Pay 1500 dollars before one will take the case. I am a single parent easing two kids. I can't afford that.

I agree get a lawyer and document everything that goes on at school. The school can't get rid of you based on the fact the principal feels the way she does...

I don't know where you live, but here in Chicago there are not-for-profit law centers, like Equip for Equality, who represent people in cases like this for free. If you are not in Illinois, you might call your state's bar association and ask about similar law centers in your state.
