Education Law Attorney Durham, North Carolina

The North Carolina Constitution requires schools to provide each child with a sound basic education. See Leandro v. State, 346 N.C. 336 (1997).  This requirement means that schools should, at a minimum, ensure that students are performing at grade level and will be able to get a good job or go to college when they graduate from high school.  If a child is failing in school, he or she is entitled to extra help to succeed.
