NO, really SERIOUSLY??
Ok so in a couple earlier posts, I talked about my son's issues with school and multiplication and my Meeting the Teacher.
Long story short, after discussing Attention Deficit Disorder and Anxiety, the teacher suggested and I agreed to move my son from the third grade math group he was in to the second grade (which IS the grade he is attending)math group to alleviate his stress about multiplication. Which in my mind would not only help his self-esteem but also reduce other classroom problems he has been experiencing.
This meeting was on March 23 just before the kids went on Spring Break. So it was understood that he would be put in the second grade math group once they got back after Easter this past Tuesday.
THIS WEEK, I get a note from his teacher saying that upon talking with the other teachers, THEY decided to keep in him the third grade math group.
I responded questioning the reason - shouldn't there be a good reason?
How was this a good idea a week and a half ago and upon talking to the other teachers suddenly it's not?
How is it that I have had NO say in this decision?
How is this in the best interest of my child?
How are you going to tell an 8 year old he won't have to do the stress-filled multiplication tables and then re-nig on the deal??
Needless to say I plan to meet with the teacher for meeting #2 tomorrow...so the saga continues...REMIND ME TO BREATHE!!!
