I live in North Carolina. I am a parent of a special need’s child who was assaulted by a school administrator. One of my goals as I have always been a voice for my children’s education in which I have always been involved. I do substitute teaching in which I love, but have not been back all because of the way the school’s district handled the assault. I have seen a lot of things that is really pushing me to advocate for all students in which administrators approach students and abuse their authority. Where do I began?

Kelly – I’m not sure if you are a student, or, if you want to advocate for students. The following articles are good place to start.
