Difference between Education Attorneys and Advocates

Education Attorneys and Education Advocates are both professionals who work to ensure that students receive a quality education and that the rights of students and educational institutions are protected. However, there are some key differences between these two types of professionals. ​

Education Attorneys have the legal authority to represent clients in court and can provide legal representation and advocacy for students, parents, and educational institutions in a wide range of legal matters. ​

On the other hand, education Advocates are typically not attorneys and do not have the legal training or authority to represent clients in court. They often work to resolve education-related issues through other means, such as mediation or negotiations with school officials.

Advocacy for Students

Education Attorneys at K Altman Law are dedicated to providing top-notch advocacy for students. Our experienced education lawyers and student defense advisors understand the complexities of the education system and are committed to ensuring that every student receives the support and representation they deserve. Whether it’s navigating special education laws, fighting for disciplinary issues or protecting students’ rights, we are here to help.

Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE)

This article provides an overview of the concept of Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE), which is a right guaranteed to students with disabilities under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

FAPE requires that students with disabilities receive education tailored to their individual needs, provided at no cost to their families, and in the least restrictive environment possible.

The article also explains the requirements for providing FAPE, which includes providing tailored instruction, monitoring progress, and involving parents in the Individualised Education Program (IEP) development process. Educators are responsible for creating an inclusive environment that meets the needs of all students, including those with disabilities. Parents play a crucial role in advocating for their child's FAPE by participating in the IEP process, monitoring progress, communicating with the school, and seeking help when necessary.

The article concludes by highlighting the services offered by Special Education Attorneys at K Altman Law, which include representation during due process hearings and appeals, assisting with Section 504 plans, and advising parents on their legal rights.

Individualized Education Program (IEP)
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) is a federal law that requires public schools to provide a continuum of services to eligible children with disabilities between the ages of 3 to 21. One of the requirements is that every child who receives special education services must have an Individualized Education Program (IEP), which is a written statement of the educational program designed to meet the child’s learning needs. The IEP process involves several steps, including the identification of the child as possibly needing special education, an evaluation to determine the child's needs, deciding the child's eligibility for services, scheduling an IEP meeting, developing the IEP, providing services, measuring progress, reviewing and modifying the IEP as necessary, and reevaluating the child. K Altman Law provides a team of special education advocates who can help parents navigate the special education process. They have decades of experience and training as special education teachers, related services personnel, and administrators. Parents can contact K Altman Law to schedule a consultation with a Special Education Advocate if they have any concerns about their child's special education and related services.
Physical Abuse Among Students
Physical abuse among students is a serious issue that can have far-reaching and long-term consequences for the victims, their peers, and the school community. The causes of physical abuse among students can stem from bullying, peer pressure, lack of supervision, and family dynamics. Physical abuse can significantly impact a student's academic performance, making it difficult to concentrate and impeding academic progress. Strategies to prevent physical abuse include creating a safe and supportive school climate, establishing clear policies and procedures for dealing with physical abuse, and providing students with opportunities to engage in positive activities. Teachers can recognize and respond to signs of physical abuse among students by being aware of warning signs, such as unexplained injuries, changes in behavior, or reluctance to attend school. Parents and guardians have a critical role to play in preventing physical abuse in schools by monitoring their children's behavior and ensuring that they are in a safe and supportive school environment. The long-term effects of physical abuse on students can include a range of psychological issues, physical health issues, and an increased risk of substance abuse and criminal behavior. Schools can implement policies and procedures to reduce physical abuse among students by ensuring that students and staff are aware of the policies and procedures and that they are consistently enforced. Education attorneys at K Altman Law can provide various services related to cases involving physical abuse among students. Finally, understanding the dynamics of physical abuse in schools is essential to effectively address and prevent the issue.
Rehabilitation Act
The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is a federal law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance, including educational institutions. Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act specifically applies to education and requires schools to provide reasonable accommodations to ensure that students with disabilities have equal access to educational programs and extracurricular activities. Schools are also required to make sure that their facilities are physically accessible and that materials and equipment are accessible to students with disabilities. The Rehabilitation Act applies to most public and some private schools that receive federal financial assistance. Attorneys who specialize in education law and disability rights law typically handle cases related to the Rehabilitation Act for students. These attorneys can help students and their families understand and assert their rights under the Act, navigate the process of obtaining accommodations and services, and represent them in disputes related to accommodations or discrimination. K Altman Law is a legal firm that offers nationwide representation for students facing issues related to the Rehabilitation Act. Their team of education attorneys can advise students and families on their rights under the Act, as well as assist schools and educational institutions in developing policies and procedures to ensure compliance with the Act.
Discrimination Among Students in Educational Institutions
Discrimination in educational institutions is a critical issue that affects students from all backgrounds. Students can face various types of discrimination, including racial, gender, sexual orientation, disability, religious, and national origin discrimination. Discrimination creates a hostile and unsafe environment for learning, which can lead to students disengaging from school and educational activities, negatively impacting their mental health, academic performance, and overall well-being. Several federal laws protect students from discrimination in educational institutions in the United States, including the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Education Amendments of 1972, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination Act of 1975, the Boy Scouts of America Equal Access Act, and the Equal Educational Opportunities Act of 1974. These laws are enforced by the Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights and the Department of Justice. If a student or parent believes that their rights have been violated, they can file a complaint with the OCR or contact a lawyer for legal advice. K Altman Law specializes in student discrimination cases and provides experienced and dedicated representation to students. They can help gather and present evidence, build a strong case, advocate for the student's rights, keep the student informed, and explore all legal options.
Representing Students facing Suspension and Expulsion
Facing disciplinary action at school, such as suspension or expulsion, can have a significant impact on a student's education, future opportunities, and mental health. Therefore, it is crucial for students and their families to seek legal representation from education attorneys who specialize in disciplinary actions. K Altman Law is a law firm that offers nationwide legal representation to students facing disciplinary actions. The firm's experienced education attorneys understand the complex laws and regulations governing disciplinary actions and can provide guidance on the procedures and navigate the legal system if necessary.

Moreover, the attorneys at K Altman Law can assist students in preparing for disciplinary hearings, cross-examining witnesses, and presenting evidence in their defense. The law firm can also help schools and universities develop policies and procedures that comply with the laws related to disciplinary actions.
Class Action Lawsuits for Students
Class action lawsuits can be filed by a large group collectively against an entity, such as a school or university. Students can file class action lawsuits for issues such as discrimination, harassment, financial fraud, and more. By joining together in a class action lawsuit, students can take on a larger and more powerful entity and hold them accountable for their actions. It allows a large group of individuals to pursue legal action collectively rather than filing individual lawsuits, which can be more efficient and cost-effective. Additionally, students involved in the lawsuit may be awarded financial compensation for the harm they have suffered, and a class action lawsuit can also lead to changes in policy or behavior by the school or university. To win a class action lawsuit, the plaintiffs must prove that they were harmed by the defendant's actions or inaction, and that their harm was a result of a violation of law or a breach of contract. K Altman Law is a dedicated education law firm with extensive experience and expertise in handling a wide range of student class action lawsuits.
Advising and Representing Students in Title IX Matters
Title IX is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in educational institutions that receive federal funding. This law requires schools to prevent and respond to sexual harassment and assault, which includes conducting investigations and disciplining those found responsible. The experienced education attorneys at K Altman Law can provide legal guidance and representation for students in Title IX matters, including investigations, hearings, and appeals. They can help ensure fair treatment and due process, provide advice on evidence and testimony, and advocate for the best possible outcome in the case. Students have the right to participate in the Title IX process and to have an advisor, such as an attorney, present during any meetings or hearings related to their case. If students believe that their school or university has not appropriately addressed their concerns or has retaliated against them for reporting an incident, they have the right to file a complaint with the Office for Civil Rights. Title IX matters can be emotionally stressful for students, especially if they have been the victim of sexual misconduct. K Altman Law attorneys can also provide legal counsel and representation to students falsely accused of sexual misconduct.

Representing Students in Academic Integrity & Honor Code Proceedings
K Altman Law offers legal representation to students facing allegations of academic misconduct in academic integrity and honor code proceedings. Academic integrity encompasses the principles of honesty, responsibility, fairness, and respect, which are fundamental to the educational process. However, academic integrity violations, such as plagiarism, cheating, fabrication, misrepresentation, conspiracy, unauthorized collaboration, and abusive conduct, can have far-reaching consequences, including revocation of degrees, loss of future job opportunities, and tarnished reputations. Honor code proceedings are administrative proceedings conducted by colleges and universities to investigate allegations of academic misconduct and determine if a violation of the academic integrity policy has occurred. The stakes are high, and the consequences can be severe, which is why it is essential for students facing allegations of academic misconduct to have legal representation to ensure their rights are protected, allegations are thoroughly investigated, and they have a fair opportunity to present their case. K Altman Law can provide valuable assistance to students in these matters, including advising on the law, investigating allegations, negotiating with the university, representing students in administrative proceedings and court, and helping students negotiate a resolution to the matter that is less severe than revocation of their degree or other harsh consequences.

K Altman Law helps secure the rights of students with disabilities by identifying disabilities, developing 504 plans, advocating for appropriate accommodations and modifications in the classroom, representing clients in disputes with schools, and assisting in the development of Individualized Education Programs (IEPs).

The American Association of University Professors has defined academic freedom as the freedom to teach, learn, conduct research, publish, and speak without fear of censorship or discipline. Similarly, the First Amendment of the US Constitution protects the freedom of speech, religion, assembly, press, and the right to petition the government. However, educators must be aware of the laws, regulations, and policies set forth by their employers and must provide a balanced and fair education to their students without imposing their personal beliefs on them. Academic freedom and First Amendment rights are essential for maintaining the integrity of the educational system and for fostering critical thinking and open dialogue.
