Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) March 5, 2007
Do you have a child in school or college? Are you a student? Are you an employee or volunteer of an educational system or federally funded program? Do you home school or cyber-school and have felt the sting of discrimination from your district?
Due to demand, the book "Pocket Guide for the Educational Advocate" is now available for pre-order. Get yours now before it even hits the bookstores.
Anyone who is a parent or educational employee is in essence, an educational advocate; or should be. Older students may need to advocate themselves at times also - and anyone interested in the quality and responsibility of education should be equipped to advocate if need be.
This easy to follow guide is your first step in empowerment.
Educational systems can sometimes intimidate and manipulate; they may have policies on paper but those policies may not be adhered to with the responsibility or education that they deserve. Alternatively, the school or college may be doing all that they can and it is up to you to know when to fight a battle or accept the reality of what is and what is not legal and ethical.
This is the starting point in which to ascertain the situation and bring positive closure, and sometimes, empowerment and rights to the forefront. This guide is packed with valuable information, mock letters and communications that you can use, and specific processes on how to file complaints to the Department of Education as well as inside tips on how to protect yourself or your child, and your rights.
The book will be available in April. Michele Paiva is available for signings, lectures, discussions and other events nationally. Michele has short articles available for free distribution, please email to acquire. http://www.michelepaiva.com and a form for preorder is available on the site. There is also a link to complimentary podcasts from Paiva.
