If I have a serious complaint about a teacher, how would I go about resolving it on a local and then on a higher level if results aren't satisfactory?

Please help explain this with detail as I need to write an essay on it.

There might be a couple of approaches that could be outlined in your essay.  The first step to discuss in your writing might be how it could be the best for everyone involved if some level of communication is initiated.  This could result in an email, a note, or even some type of verbal contact that helps to bring to light that some type of articulation is needed.  If a student has a problem or concern with a teacher, being able to bring it out in the open is a good first step.  Writing about this might be a good starting point.  If this is something that cannot be done or has not borne fruit, then perhaps moving the complaint up the chain of command might be the next step.  If this involves a prefect or administration official, that could be another good move.  This might also involve one's parents to help in the cause.  I think that elaborating on these steps in your writing could help to clearly identify the steps that one could take in order to bring about successful results to this problem.
