Can a pre k student get denied to go to field trip with his class unless accompanied by parent?

Asked over 1 year ago - Miami, FL

the private school sent me a letter stating your child will not be allowed to accompany the class to this field trip unless he is accompanied by a parent. This decision has been taken because of your child's inability to control his behavior and display appropriate and acceptable behavior in his class. This teacher has complained about my child's as been too hyper in her class prior to this incident.

    Answered . Of course the school can do this. How could it be otherwise?

    Answered . I would agree with my colleagues primarily because it is a private school, but also because the student is younger than required school age.
