Ghost, that is so horrible and I am so sorry that happened to you.
Batty, I dearly wish that were possible. I would love to see something like that happen, but I don't think it will.
His poor mom works for the school, but lives in another town. One huge perk was being able to send him to school here, which is a far better school system. She's addressing it, but is worried about how far she can go, wondering if she'll get fired. In which case, she would have to move him to the other school district.
I am having one of those moments when I am so angry that I almost can't see straight. I've always had absolutely wonderful experiences with the schools here in the past. Now that Ava is in middle school, I'm having a much harder time communicating. So... short version here... once we got Ava well (medically) we discovered she had severe anxiety from the whole experience. Once we tackled that we started seeing serious focus issues. Not traditional ADD symptoms, but close enough to try something for it. Two months ago we got a prescription for a new medication because what we were trying simply wasn't working. I let the school know about the change and asked them to take note if it helped or not. Really, truly, "yes" or "no". So here we are two months in and I've got nothing! This is something they should have been able to notice in the first couple of days, and fair to give an answer on after 2 weeks - 3 tops. In not being able to get this answer I've discovered that it's not just one flaky teacher. There's some sort of system break down at this place. I've been patient. I've been nice. I'm now done being both. The correspondence just keeps getting more surreal and unacceptable and is inching me ever closer to saying one of those truly ugly things.
