It's Back to School week for Nash

Oh how I can hardly wait. New teacher, new class room, new experience in 4th grade. Our top heavy school corporation is now in a feud with the teachers and teachers union. So we get 32 to 33 kids in a class room this year. I new special education teacher that still believes special education is a place down the hall in the resource room. And I am sure we will have a great chat when she thinks she needs to teach Nash to go to the grocery store or learn to cook. I that will be one fun chat. That is not what we need.

We know have a president of the school board that worked for the city, then started a development company of his own, and now works for Saxony development. So know we have a school board that believes more in building new schools then reigning in spending. A board that would rather fight with the teachers then figure out a way to teach students. A board that does not have a decent business mind in the bunch. But hey we have two Carmelites now running the school system in the Superintendent and Asst roles. That should work out well.

So we also get Nash's education file this week. Totally incomplete but am amazed...yes amazed with what they did include. Nothing like documenting they are violating Nash's IEP year after year.

This Dad who did believe in public school may become the biggest advocate to school choice and waivers in the near future.

Peace Dude.
