I'm starting to think The Universe is against me. Seriously.
What's that line...the Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away?
If you've followed this blog for awhile-
a) you are undoubtedly super amazingly COOL and b) you will remember that we did not get Jaysen into a fantabulous school without a fight.
A fight that cost him years of education, set him back socially, and shattered my trust and faith in humanity.
A fight I am afraid I am going to have to embark on yet again.
I don't know if I have the strength to do this.
I received a call from V, the supervisor of Special Education.
She informed me via phone message, that it's okay Jaysen follow through with the good school for upper elementary for 5th and 6th grade, but for middle and high school, she says he has to get back on track with our "home" schools.
Hmm. Let's think about that for a minute.
My son was put through so much hell at one school, that you yourself- the supervisor of Special Education- said it was despicable, and he should not be subjected to that treatment. You were there when my son was isolated from his peers and an appropriate education for over 4 months. You were there when the teacher got the parents to rally- calling him a "monster", said he should be in a separate class, not allowed around other kids, and when were their kids going to get "special attention" like him? You were there when the principal blatently lied about her actions, and violated multiple ethical and legal avenues. You even had to reign her in.
You were also the one who toured the other schools with us. You were the one who said the school we toured (Jaysen's current school), would be a much more accepting and encouraging environment. You gushed on and on how this would be a productive and successful environment for him. That he would flourish. And he is.
So it's kind of beyond me, why he is being transferred back to the school system that was horrible to him.
And the kicker?
The shit-eating principal from the crappy school? Is at the middle school you want him in.
There is something really feckered up about that.
