My son was ahead of the kids in his class, but his teacher felt it necessary to come down on my son and me, like now she doesn't get credit for what he learns. She penalized him for being a self starter and separated him from the other kids.
Staff looked the other way when my son was hit by other kids. When he told anyone on staff about being bullied, they ignored him. When I called the office about missing items, or my son coming home with bruises, they told me it was my son's fault.
My son was put down and isolated because he got his work done before anyone else and the teacher penalized him for it. Not only that, she lied on the tests to show where kindergartners were. It made her look good, when she made it look like the kids knew nothing, so she could get a good eval and possibly a raise later.
The teacher would hand out work to keep the kids busy and not explain the paper. Even at home, the work had no instructions, but it was expected to go back completed. As a former educator, I was highly disappointed.
My son had an IEP before attending this school, but the teacher was convinced he needed more services, in spite of what the special needs team told her. In just under 3 months, I pulled my son out of that school. He was bullied by kids and teachers. There is something wrong when I get my son to see bruises on his face, but for the staff and teacher to act like it is nothing. His teacher singled out the white boys in the class as being bad, throwing my son in with that, because he looks white. During a meeting, before pulling him out of the school, the teacher got after me for my son being more advanced than the other kids in the class, under the impression that I pushed him to do too much, even though now he is in another school and considered being behind, for the same grade. The school building may be nice and a few of the students are amazing, but a majority of the staff and students are just rotten.
