Part 2: Over 3 months isolation punishment for 2nd grader
On last meeting with the teacher, here is what she said: "Your son's behavior problem affects his academic development. He cannot get to 3rd grade. Why don't you put him in self contained class? The class is so nice." My son won gold medal for math last year. He calls him as the Math Master. Yes, his crying, yelling, showing anger to teacher in the class were absolutely wrong. But, they set the stage up to make him hurt. I wrote a letter to the teacher saying that she is angry with the baby with a needle on his back. Nowadays, my son does not bother any other friends anymore. He said that nobody in his class likes him. He also said that even the girl who he lent a pencil and an eraser to did not say thank you to him. He also said that everybody hates him.
My son's English tutor (teacher licensed) is saying that my son's English skill is better than average 2nd graders. Nowadays he is reading the 43 book series of Magic Tree House. He loves to read. On his math, he is better than average 2nd graders. I believe that the teacher made her decision based on my son's behavior problem in the class and that makes me more sad because she is the person who made his stage upside down.
Do I have to demand an independent evaluation test for him?
Please share your wisdom.
