Education and Special Education Law

Too often, schools fail to provide our children with the kind of educational services they need in order to be successful. Even though many state and federal laws exist in order to ensure that our children receive a free, appropriate, public education, many schools are in violation of these laws. Unfortunately, a school’s failure to comply with the law often results in our children having a variety of learning, behavioral and social problems, which may affect them for the rest of their lives. Because many schools do not respond to parents’ complaints and advocacy on behalf of their children, the services of an Education Lawyer may be necessary in order for your child to get the kind of education he or she’s are entitled to by law. At Eric Alan Berg and Associates, we know both Education and Special Education Law.
