RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — A Richmond mother says Richmond Public Schools is refusing to provide online education for her son.
When the pandemic hit and schools closed, Laquetta Massey thought for sure her special needs son would be able to access virtual courses just like every other RPS student. Yet, Massey says that hasn’t happened and her son is being denied his right to an education.
“I am a little agitated again,” Massey told 8News.
The families’ child advocate Dr. Marla Crawford says RPS will only offer virtual classes on one condition that she calls a violation of federal mandates.
