Frustrated in PA with Teacher
My daughter is entering 9th grade and slotted to take Level III Honors for Spanish. The problem is that the only teacher that teachs the class is my next door neighbor. We have been involved with several lawsuits with them (I built a pool and they tried to stop me...multiple times). Most were thrown out, but there is still an ongoing suit. I do not want my child placed in her class. The principal told me, when she picked her language in 6th grade, that they would handle it 'down the road'. Well, we're down the road and the superintendent told me to either (1) move her down to mid track or (2) have her start over with another language. The former is not an option (she read novels throughout Level II--not tracked--and still managed an A. The latter is not an option because that would potentially affect her college placement (if she continues with Spanish, she will have fulfilled her language requirements in hs). Also, there is only 1 french teacher that teaches 7th thru 12th grade. This notoriously causes majoring scheduling conflicts in hs. We are a very small district. I don't know what to do--I cannot put her in this teacher's class--she has made inappropriate comments about my pool in her classes (heard from several kids-unable to prove because i refuse to drag kids into this situation).
Help! Does anyone know if I have any legal rights?
