My grandson wore a baseball cap during lunch, was returning to class and had his base ball cap on. Before he was going into the classroom he knows he has to remove the baseball cap. The principal saw him taking his cap and told him his cap would be returned at the end of the day, but he was given a 30 minute detention for wearing the cap. Does wearing a baseball cap inside of a school building constitutue a violation of the law or can it just be a school violation which warrants detention to students, because of their school policy? Has his rights been violated? or Does he need to comply and do the detention. If the school is going to take the students caps then it should be in their school dress code policy. Should I challenge the school board on this policy which is not in the dress code policy "Not allowed to wear caps".
It sounds like your grandson violated the school's dress code policy and not the law. (It would be highly unlikely that wearing a baseball cap on school grounds is against the law.) Review the student handbook and the dress code policy carefully to see what it says about violating the dress code and the possible consequences. If the code is silent about the possible consequences, then you could certainly consider bringing this to the school administrators' attention so that they could look into editing their policy to put students on notice of the possible consequences for violations. Good luck.
Would like your thoughts on this scenario. GirlA owns and is using her laptop at school whilst GirlB suspects that GirlsA has written something about her on said laptop and proceeds to grab the laptop screen which make GirlA grab the screen by reflex. Laptop screen is broken and now said laptop is unusable. Is GirlB or school or both liable in anyway? Grumpy.
It's going to depend on the school's rules and policies as well as the specific facts and circumstances. First, was the laptop a school issued laptop? If not, then the matter be an issue only between the two girls. It's possible that both girls may be responsible for the damage (making Girl B responsible for half the damage). Perhaps the girls and their parents can discuss the situation and try to work out a compromise. Thanks for writing. (This is information only - not legal advice.)
I'm 15 years old I will be 16 in April, I ran away from home 2 times because my at home life with my dad and his girlfriend is terrible, that's obviously why I did leave. The first time they found me at a friends house and the second time they found me at my boyfriends house. Neither of the two knew that I had ran away until the cops showed up. Those are the only two places where I feel comfortable at and where I am genuinely happy. The second time a cys worker brought me to my grandmothers where I would be staying because her and her supervised got a 30 day plan for right now for me to stay there. The case worker said that my father could not have a say so in the rules that I am to follow right now and he cannot butt in. The case worker also informed us that he signed his rights away to her for 30 days. My grandmother is letting me go out to have fun with my boyfriend and friends And my dad found out so he called the cops reporting that I was missing. Later that night we got everything sorted out to where he ended up telling them he knew where I was and he knew that I was not missing he just did not want me with all those people and they told him he could not make a false report. He also said he's going to put a restraining order on my boyfriend and I don't know what I can do to prevent that because he's never abused me physically or mentally and he's never done anything to my family he hasn't even met them yet. They have no reason to not like him besides the fact that I ran away to him but none of them had no clue that I ran away. They don't like him because he makes me happy. My sister heard them talking about it. So I don't know what I can do to get permanently placed with my grandmother. I mean I come home I have that trust with them that they know I will come home my grades have gotten better since I've been here.
We're sorry to hear about your circumstances. It's good that there is an alternative placement for you where you feel comfortable and happy - at your grandmother's. Perhaps you could try talking to your grandmother first and let her know how you feel. Make sure that she is on board with you. She can help talk to the caseworkers and others involved to find out what needs to be done for a permanent placement to happen. If for some reason, you do not want to talk to your grandmother, please talk to another adult you trust about your circumstances. Good luck.
Can you please remove my previous posting of today. It had my name and location. Thanks!
what are the causes and effects of cyber bullying
Here is a link to our article on that very issue - the causes and effects of cyberbullying. Thanks for writing.
My dad backed into a driveway to turn around on the street and the cop got him for a u-turn the same cop that's been trying to arrest me for the charges that he could not get me on
Your Dad could look into fighting the ticket. Many people represent themselves in traffic court if they cannot afford an attorney. He will just need to tell his side of the story and see what the judge says. If you and your Dad feel that you are being harassed by the officer, you could look into making a complaint about the officer. You could contact the department and ask about making a complaint to internal affairs. The complaint should be in writing. It should become part of the officer's file so that his/her supervisors are aware and can keep their eye on the officer if necessary. Good luck to you and your dad.
