hello and welcome heatherriver, this story sounds very familiar with myself and from quite a few of the folks I have read about in the short time I have been here. As sad as that is.
Sure you could sue them, heck, in this country you can sue almost anyone for anything. Will it help? Probably not. Not for you and certainly not current L.D. students. In my humble opinion, first work out the anger/anxiety/hurt feelings in some type of therapy (do it while your young,trust me you'll be glad) then work WITH the school board, be sure others aren't falling through the cracks. (esp. if you have kids or relatives who might have L.D.s) Education is much more constuctive.
And yes I see the irony of needing to educate the school system. Truth be told, schools have much better tools for helping the L.D. students now than they did in our days( they just need to put it a higher priority).
Good luck to you and look forward to hearing more from you here.
