It costs nearly a quarter of a million dollars annually to keep David in facility care… one barrier to bringing David home is a lack of community support. What would happen if we used the fee paid to the facility to cover staff in the home?
Image via Wikipedia Well, as many of my faithful readers will remember, we are going through a facilitated IEP for our son, David. After a few attempts at scheduling the actual meeting, we finally appear to have a date and time that we can all agree on. I plan to ask for half days of school. Music, PE, Science or Math and lunch. David is 10 years old and in the fourth grade. Hopefully we can get him back into public school. Tweet #fighting4answrs
Update February 12, 2012 An update. In chatting with news people, it was explained to me how the story is reported. Since the report from the Sheriff Department reported it as an accident, the news people felt that there really wasn’t a lot else to report. I can see where they would say that. And I agree with that. Since it is an accident, there was no real reason to think that our district was being inaccurate in their portrayal of bullying in our district as being something that happens 3 or 4 times a year. I appreciate the news person for helping me understand how they work. I applaud them for their efforts at fair and accurate reporting.
