    She must certainly know “somebody” – does she also have a staff?

    It is obviously cheaper for a school system to hire an in-house attorney than to contract with a firm based on this information. Attorney’s charge too much for too little results in my opinion in every scenerio.
    If she is in-house, hopefully she puts in a 40 hour week or more and is an expert in school law already instead of learning through on-the-job training.
    It is a shame that lawyers influence schools. Again it is the kids who are caught in the middle.
