Quite an encouraging & nice article.It can serve as a learning experience for the other teachers and can add onto the confidence level of other teachers.

Why is it that there are no attorney's in Illinois that can help a teacher for blowing the whistle on the school.
I fought the school for proper materials to teach with, I report an unsafe classroom, ED student pulling scissors on an MR girls neck and allowed to return to class, all African American locked up on the 3rd floor for 3 hours at a time with 2 5 minute breaks, illegal and non compliant IEP's. I screamed for help and even contacted Mr. Charlie Fox for help- I also was told by my advisor at NLU to keep being a thorn when they put a student straight from regular Ed. into the most restrictive classroom Cross-Cat with NO IEP or meetings. I got fired! So, how does help teachers that report on schools? They tried to bury me but I was fired for unjust case. Still need help who is there for us teachers to turn to? And please don't say the UNION.
I have all the documentation needed that I advocated for my students who were in 8th grade and could not read, write, nor barely add. All this in a Northwestern North Shore School- HELP?
