My tax dollars at work!

Sweet Geek had another "discussion" with the school yesterday. We sent in ANOTHER copy of the doctor's report (WITH the dx on it, thankyouverymuch!)on Friday, and he called yesterday to talk to the principal about it. He somehow ended up in the Special Ed department....where he was told that "her problem isn't Academic, it's Social, so....we can't help!" :bangs head:

Ironically enough, I received a 3-week FAILURE NOTICE in the mail last night. :insert hysterical laughter here:

Yeah.....my daughter was a straight-A Honor Roll student until she got in THIS school last school year (5th grade). She BARELY passed last year, and is on track to barely squeak by this year....I have requested an ARD meeting (basically a meeting with the Spec. Ed department) to get her back in the program, to get her an IEP - this was in EARLY SEPTEMBER. To say I am pissed off doesn't even began to cover it.

He's on the warpath now. :heh heh: He's just about decided to skip the School Board and go straight to Austin with this...we'll see. I'd like to see the councilor (who has thus far refused to do ANYTHING she promised me) to join the unemployment line, but that's not very charitable of me. I'm working on it. :arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh:

In other news, I am almost finished with the first motif on my hat. 3-color stranded knitting doesn't make for fast progress. :grin:

More later - maybe. I gotta calm down first.

Sounds like the issues I had with my first grade teacher. I have allergies that when they act up cause me to become hard of hearing. My first grade teacher would take us out to recess and when we got back in, my allergies would act up making me hard of hearing. She took this as me having an Attitude problem. She didn't believe letters from my mom, letters from thee doctor, Calls from my mom, calls from the doctor. It finally took a sit down conference between my mom, my principle, my Doctor, and the teacher before she got it through her thick skull. Her response at the conference was "Oh I am sorry I didn't know". Let me tell you it was not a big surprise that she was fired the next year.

That...yeah. Stuff like this just floors me, because teachers should *listen* to the kids. AND to the parents/doctors...:sigh:
