Is there a federal law stating that no school age child will be excluded from an educational class field trip because he/she has forgotten homework?
Not once, have I received a call or note home stating that his homework has been an issue. Not once was I included or even informed of this decision they made about the trip. I found out from my 10 year old son.
Their reasoning for this is to teach him responsibility. Isn't it their job to teach him techniques to deal with his disabilities rather than punish him for them? I agree that there should be some consequences if a child forgets their homework, but I strongly disagree that this "punishment fits the crime"! There are 2 more field trips that are also based on this same idea, between now and the end of June. I dont doubt that because of this memory issue he has, he will not be allowed to go on either of these! I am heartbroken for him, as is he. He is not "forgetting" his homework to be defiant or rebellious. He is NEVER a "behavior" issue. He is NOT violent, he does not curse/use bad language. He is just a child that struggles daily!
