Most American citizens know about basic rights such as Freedom of Religion, Speech, etc. We use these rights and we tell other people about our rights whenever we need to do that. In education, you have rights and so does your child. Get to know those rights.
Children with disabilities ages birth to 21 years of age, who have any of the disabilities included in IDEA and who need special education and related services, have a right to get those services. These rights are guaranteed by state and federal law.
