“Twice within the space of three months my daughter had to defend herself from physical harm as a result of the school’s negligence,” Rodriguez said. “June 9, my daughter had received threatening and insulting texts from another student. That morning, while my daughter was walking with her teacher, the aforementioned student burst from her classroom, not being stopped by her teacher and proceeded to aggressively fast-walk down the hall toward my daughter.”

Rodriguez said her daughter had to then “defend herself” which resulted in a 10-day suspension.
