getting my son educated....the school is not helping

I live in Pennsylvania and I am frustrated with my sons current school. He has a perceptual eye disorder which makes it a little harder to read. In five years the school has done nothing for him. They wait until the end of the year and show me his scores and most of the time there is no progression and sometimes in a year of school he actually goes backwards. His problem is not that severe that he cannot and should not be moving forward. I am beyond frustrated with the school and I do not know what to do. I complain and it gets me no where. Does anyone have any advice? If I could afford to send him to a private school I would. I think his current school should have to pay because they obviously can not educate him. He is in 6th grade and reads at a 3rd grade reading level and couldn't write 4 paragraphs to save his life because they don't teach him. They only do the work for him because it's easier to do that than to teach him. I wanted to get a lawyer to try to fight the school but I have no money for that either.
