I've done it again...let so much time elapse that hundreds of things have happened that I should have discussed here. Anyway...there was basically no way that Tommy could stay in school - either he refused to go, or he was being made fun of/bullied, was not understanding or keeping of with work, many social problems, etc. It has been this way since Kindergarden. I don't even know how he got this far (6TH GR) because I just know that in subjects other than reading, he is not on grade level. He has not been in school since Feb. I have not officially withdrawn him yet but I do have an email stating that I am authorized to start homeschooling. Here's the thing though: First, I have no idea how to do this. I am doing the research now. Most important though is the fact that he is still fighting me on doing much more than a half hour of work a day. I honestly am feeling very overwhelmed but like I said - I saw no other way. At least I no longer have to worry about what's happening at school, principal calling me, etc. Is anyone else doing this?
