Parents need to understand that once a child enters school property, by law the school has certain rights that are similar to parental rights.
If there is a serious disciplinary problem, or if there is a reasonable suspicion that the child might possess drugs or weapons or other contraband, the school has the right to question the child, impose discipline, and to search the child and his or her locker.
Therefore, if your child is in some sort of trouble at school, do not focus so much on the process; instead, focus on the actual merit, or lack of merit, to whatever your child is charged with, and on whatever discipline is proposed.
An experienced attorney can help you oppose, appeal or lessen the charges and discipline to be imposed.
