violence@ school vs parental rights
09/16/2011 at 08:25 AM

My son is 9yrs old a sweet child all together.Yesterday he was beaten up by another child @ lunch time.And he did the right thing by reporting it to an adult.The adult brushed it off and told the kids to leave him alone.No official report was made,no phone call to the parents ,not even a letter explaning my son's black eye.Today I went to the school to inquire about the events and filed an official complaint.Now my question is...Does the school principal have the right to speak with my child without a parent present EVEN though I have expressed that I would like to be present when the principal speak to my son.The principal has refused my presence when she would like to hear my son's version of the attack.I feel that my rights are being violated.But I have no proof.i call the school board but all I get is an automated service and answering machines.I've gone to several websites and nothing.Can anyone help?!
