Education Law, Bullying and Harassment

Children have a right to feel safe and to have equal opportunities while in the New York educational system. Unfortunately, bullying and other unfair treatment is commonplace for many young children and teens. At Jacobowitz and Gubits, LLP, our experienced education law attorneys work hard to put an end to harassing, discriminatory behavior. We also work hard to hold those responsible accountable for their actions (or lack thereof).

Special Needs Children

Students with disabilities have the right to an appropriate public education, and they are entitled to receive services or programs that suit their needs. At Jacobowitz and Gubits, LLP, we realize that school districts oftentimes fail to live up to these responsibilities, leaving children with disabilities at a disadvantage. This is not acceptable. Our attorneys help parents of special needs children get the remedies they and their children need and those to which they are legally entitled, including:

  • Private tutoring
  • Assistive technology
  • Reasonable accommodations
  • Compensatory services
  • Admittance to private schools, when a free appropriate public education is not available
  • Other remedies as appropriate

We realize that parents want and deserve what is best for their children. We also understand how frustrating getting school districts to cooperate can be. We will help you understand your child’s rights and this complex area of the law.

Bullying in New York Schools

Whether evident or not, bullying occurs at most schools on a daily basis. If you have a son or daughter who has been the victim of bullying, speak to our attorneys today to discuss your child’s rights and learn how we can help.
