Eeyore is complaining that some of the boys in his classes have pretty significant behavior issues. Now, "significant behavior issues" can mean anything from 'they talk too loud' to 'they set the room on fire' to Eeyore so I asked him to get specific. At first, it just sounded like these boys have little impulse control and talk out in class, use swear words and are hyper. But on Friday, one boy ran across the room and punched another for touching his pencil. The teacher was in the hallway as it was during the change of classes so she didn't see it. She sent the alleged attacker to the asst principal and the alleged victim to the nurse. The asst principal came to the room and the teacher offered Eeyore as a witness as the other boy in the room at the time refused to say anything. The worst part is that the boy was told he couldn't be suspended cause he has an IEP so he only got detentions (we have a crisis program that should have been used but I guess the school didn't want to start using this boy's 10 days yet). Eeyore wants OUT of his Special Education classes. Course, just 1 week into the school year I don't see the school going for that. Especially as the class he'd most need to be moved from is one he really needs to be in Special Education. I really hope these boys settle down. I told Eeyore to just keep staying away from them, doing his work and that if he is doing well after first quarter, we will ask about re-doing his 2nd semester schedule to move him up a level (academically he can handle the next level, we didn't put him there due to the 30+ kids in a room, but that may be preferable than 15 kids who are continually disruptive). What really worries me is that this level of Special Education is where Tigger will go in 2 years and he does NOT handle bullies very well.
