You may note my sarcasm on the title to this post but I am just in amazement here about the lack of response and follow up to our education situation we have gone through over the past several months.
I was cleaning out my emails this morning and realized, I have not heard from anyone. Not one person has followed up with me on the elopement issues we faced with my kids and our public school, or any of the issues for that matter. There was many. Since then I have home schooled them. The last communication I sent to my contacts was get back to me. This situation needs fixed. I was in contact with our school district’s head of special education. I was also in contact with a person on the State level of Education. I have not heard from any of them.
Though in my mind I have made the decision to homeschool, and I have put other services, autism related into our lives to compensate and help with the boys’ skills. I would like to at some point be able to dual enroll the kids when and if the school system can ever get it together. Will that happen? I have no idea.
No matter that I am home schooling the boys now, the facts are we had some major issues go down in our schools that are not getting addressed and I am wondering with the lack of response if they are getting swept under the rug once again. That part of the situation I am very frustrated with. I don’t have time to continue to seek these people out. Are they forgetting that I am doing Their Jobs for them now? I think they have forgotten!
Welcome to our messed up system. This is the part of autism that is very frustrating as a parent. Our system is broken. People are getting paid to help us and where is the help? Hmmm……No sign of it here, that is for sure!
