Can I sue a private school for not teaching my child
Here it goes. I took my child out of public school in the middle of the second grade due to bullying and the school was not doing anything. I was at the doctors and eye doctors more than he was in school. We took him out of public school and put him into private. Withing the the third grade we noticed his reading was not up to par. There was something not quite right. I had meetings with his teacher who told me they knew the problem and would work on it. He was missing the basics. Well we continued to go back and forth and they told us they had the problem under control. Our child is now in 5th grade. We had him tested and he is at a reading 2nd grade level. WTF!!!! They also told us his math capacity was beyond the level he was at. He was doing 6th and 7th grade math. Well after having him tested at a testing area for profit and finding out he was not close to where he should be. We moved him back into the public school system but at a better school. We are having a psych-education testing done as we speak. Our sons new teacher has red flagged our son after knowing and watching him what is it two weeks into school. They are testing him also and he is at a second grade level. His math is also sub par!!! We are devistated!!! I kept going to his teacher in the private school asking if we should get our son extra help and he kept telling me no. He has this but clearly he didnt and next year our child will be going into middle school. They would have taken our money and shuffled him along. This is so heartbreaking.. Everytime I think about this I cry. We are the type of parents that will do anything for our childrens education. They have failed my child. They took our money and failed him. He is at the same level they got him!!! WTF!!! (sorry I cant help it). Does anybody know if we can sue a private school for dont doing their job. The icing on the cake. This school is a learning center he was in. It is a religious school. My husband and I are not the ones to go to church everyday (We were very clear with them why we were sending him there for a good education). My god!! he went to a religious school and wont be able to read and understand a bible. We paid them on time. We neve missed a beat with their money. They never had to come looking for us. Education is so important. At this rate my child is going to become frustrated and drop out when they allow him to. I have to say that my son knows that he has some difficulty reading. He has noticed it himself but he doesnt know to the extent. Im rambling now. Any advice will be helpful. As I said we are having him tested to see what he needs and then plan to make sure he gets it. If we have to work ten jobs. Take care everyone.
