Going to school without the fear of being bullied should be the right of every child; however this does not always happen. A Carlson Law Firm attorney, Leatrice Taylor, was recently featured on a 10 On Your Side segment on KWTX.
In this video Taylor recommends several legal steps you should take if you know your child is being bullied at school. Taylor says, “Your child has the right to receive and have access to education, and for that not to be hindered.”
Taylor recommends the following:
- Notify School Officials if your child tells you who the bully is.
- There may be certain restrictions about what kind of information the school is allowed to give you about the other child. So use careful wording when trying to get information.
- If the problem continues, make your way up the chain of command, eventually getting making it to the School Board.
- Keep a diary of all contact with all involved parties.
