This conduct was insensitive and unprofessional, to say the least. It merits a strong complaint to the principal, head of the district and even your state school superintendent. But it is not a sound basis for a lawsuit.
My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must not be relied upon as legal advice. I give legal advice only in the course of an attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by individual consultation and execution of a written agreement for legal services.
