A private high school administrator interviewed a student for 5-10 minutes in which the student denied any knowledge of alcohol at a party and was expelled 3 days later for lying to him and telling others to lie to cover it up. Let's just say since we are all human, the administrator was in error, does the student or his family have any rights to clear up the situation? Let's say the student took a polygraph and showed 100% honesty. If this situation is accurate as described, is there still no rights against someone causing an expulsion for wrong information. There was only one person handling the entire investigation. The family was denied access to talk to the board. The student does not have a history of discipline problems, but the school does have a zero tolerance policy. Being at the wrong place at the wrong time would even be acceptable if it wasn't for the lying accusations. Is anyone responsible for wrong information. Or can private schools who hire humans who are not perfect either, say anything they want about someone and not have to answer to anyone?
A student's rights in a private school are spelled out in the legal document which parents sign with the school. The manner in which the school interprets those rights will vary from school to school.
I behaved wrongly in a public junior high school in the late 70's and was swatted twice with a big, mean looking paddle, by a big, mean looking principle in a rather glum office.
Funny, I was never so inclined to pursue that avenue of disruption again and my delicate ego has not been damaged by that act of brutality unto this day.
As a matter of fact, I would rather submit to that kind of discipline than to be hewed down verbally in front of 30 students, which also happened to me by a rather sarcastic teacher.
Thou knowest not what thou speakest of in regards to corporal punishment, oh intellectual genius. Looking at the crime rates on high school campi, maybe there needs to be more of that bad ol' corporal punishment.
I hear you, but the cycle of beating still needs to be broken. It truly solves nothing to perpetuate corporal punishment in our schools.
Is one test harder than the other? Do students perform better on one over the other? Given a choice, which would you have a 7th grader take for admission into private school at grade 8?
The choice is not ours. You must take whatever test the school requires.
Registering a School
Can I register a private school/college here in the U.S.A. and offer courses/classes in another country? Must it have a functioning school here in the U.S.A. as well as in the foreign country?.
My best advice is for you to seek a legal opinion. The laws governing the operation of a business vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
A matured filipino teacher would like to volunteer at no cost on the part of the school to teach language and reading. Allowance for food and housing will suffice. Holder of Masters degree in Teaching. Taught children in the different educational levels from elementary to college students. Holder of a US visa valid till 2009.
A foreigner must possess a Green Card even to volunteer in the United States.
