public school is not addressing my child's special
needs or following IEP
The following are excerpts from letters we
have received from parents interested in receiving help and information
on homeschooling in Indiana. Specifics have been removed for privacy.
We are publishing these posts in an effort to portray to the general
public and the media, a more balanced picture of why parents are
transferring their children out of their local public schools to
educate them at home.
My son was diagnosed as being bipolar and having
PDD. Rather than follow the IEP that was set in place for him, [the
school employee] changed it at her will and then today blindsided
us with trying to put him in a school 2 districts away out of general
education. When all testing and diagnosises showed he needed to
be in a general education class. So I have decided my best choice
for him was to put his education first and teach him myself.
Both my daughters have been sent to home-bound.
I have struuggled with the school for years. My girls have been
taunted, and abused and now I have recieved a letter from the IDOE
stating that this school district is not up to par for all special
needs kids. One daughter is finishing 7th grade and one is finishing
10th grade. I need help.
My son has been having trouble with his special
education teachers. So now they are trying to expell him. This upsets
me so I am reasearching home schooling options.
