How do you react when people do not respond to your important appropriate questions?

How do you react when people do not respond to your important appropriate questions?
I am not going to mention the name of the program. They are a decent adult program. The teacher is giving me almost No Feedback. He requested Cd's of my son working with a Ta from his former school. At home and I sent them. I still receive no Feedback.
I work with my son and he does well for me.
What should I do? I do not wish to be conformational but I feel he is being disrespectful and is rude.
I always worked with my son's school. I am trained and experienced. I want to be helpful and to know what my son is doing.
Why don't they understand?

Because some of them think "they know it all" I would do what Kraven said, then if that does not help, I would go over his head and talk to his boss about the situation. Where do these people think they are getting their money from to pay them? You absolutely have to watch out for your son. They think everyone has the same problems and treat them the same way. Everyone's situation is different. Just keep after them until it is resolved to your satisfaction. Good Luck..

Thank you Dixie.
I will resolve it. It is just disappointing. It is stressful.
They do assume that people will accept this treatment but I will not. I have always had to fight for things in life.
I am a mature women. The Teacher is immature and lacks life experience and training.
My son had an awesome school for ten years. I still had to Advocate for him because the District is clueless.

I know what you mean.
Often people in these positions don't communicate well, you have to ask specific questions and not allow them to avoid answering.
That's uncomfortable because you feel like you're the one that is being too pushy.
Usually, as politely as possible, I keep at it until I get my questions answered.

I know... easier said than done.

If we're too aggressive to the point of being perceived as rude, the person will always be on the defensive from that point on; making our objective that much more difficult each time.

It's a tough balance to maintain.

Your right Kraven.
Next week is my husbands turn. It's hard to get help from him. I work with my son and I have always been the one to Advocate for him. Now my husband is angry too because this Teacher ignored me.
He will be calling next week. Calling his superiors. People do ask I ask because I insist. People do as my husband ask because everyone thinks he wonderful. Whatever works is fine with me.
