Your school probably has a policy about contesting grades. You should look at the policy and follow the steps as indicated in the policy. Based on your description, it sounds like you could benefit from speaking to the professor first to determine how your final grade was calculated.See question

If you are a high school student, you should speak to the principal, and, if possible, ask your parent/guardian for assistance. You can also talk to any teacher or counselor and ask for help. Your school is likely to have rules and policies about cyberbullying.

My son is disable and he has an IEP. The IU is not providing the services that is on the IEP so he is behind.
You can request an IEP meeting to discuss your concerns. You should do so in writing. If possible, you should retain a special education attorney or find out if there are non-attorney advocates who can help parents of special education students. In addition, there may be a mediation process offered to address any issues that you cannot resolve at the IEP meeting.See question

The principal should be responding to emails, but regardless of that, you should attend the meeting. If your medical condition makes it difficult to attend, ask to reschedule the meeting for a time that works for you, or attend by telephone.
The purpose of this type of meeting is to discuss strategies for helping your child arrive at school on time. The school will want your child to be in school during scheduled hours and to avoid the disruption caused by late arrivals. They may be able to help you address the factors that prevent you from getting your child to school on time.
You can have legal representation, but it would be very unusual. You may want a friend or family member to attend with you to advocate for you and your child and to provide moral support.See question

Your son is on a behavioral plan, presumably for some reason. Parents are usually consulted about behavioral plans, so that they can also reward their students when they meet their behavioral goals. I agree that this should not be shared with the other students nor should they decide whether your son met his goals. I agree that you should talk to the principal regarding how the chart will be used in the future. Regarding a lawsuit, you would have to prove that your son has suffered some kind of significant and lasting damage before an attorney would be willing to take your case. It is difficult to be involved in lawsuits, so that would potentially add to the stress you and your son feel because of this incident. I suggest you try to work with the teacher and principal to make sure this does not happen again and that your son's teacher is working effectively and appropriately on helping him with any behavioral issues that he has. Having said that, school districts do have complaint procedures that you can utilize by contacting the Human Resources Department. But the consequences of filing a complaint include interviews with witnesses, including your son. It may be best to work with the school rather than against them.See question
im a student in high school and today in class my teacher ask us a question and I answered it loudly and he was right next to me so he grabbed me by the shoulder and squeezed it and it hurt when he did
Your teacher should not have touched you physically. If you feel like you need to do something, I suggest you speak to one of the counselors at your school, or ask for your parent's assistance in addressing this. You could also speak to the teacher directly and try to work things out that way. It does not sound, from the information you provided, that you have a legal issue. You have an issue with a teacher. Potentially, you could file a claim against the teacher by contacting the Human Resources Department for your school district. But these types of concerns are probably best dealt with by speaking to people at your school and letting them know how you feel about what happened.See question
