I recieved an email today from the Program Director of special education. difficult child and I met with her last week. difficult child requested he not be physically in with the Special Education teacher. He also said he wanted to do it on his own. She agreed that would be a good idea, but reminded him of the the things we have in place on the IEP if he needs it. She also asked him if he would like to be in classes with a friend or two. He was so happy. He gave her two names. Well, Today I recieve an email telling me that because of difficult child's high test scores he was placed in honors classes. Unfortunately his friends he wanted to be with are not in a position to be in honors. YIKES. he is NOT going to take this well. We did not select honors classes not because he couldn't do it, because he doesn't do homework well. He has been on a refusal to do homework strike. Not a new thing, ongoing ever since he started school. It is my understanding that honors classes have a lot more homework. I'm not telling him. She asked me what I thought. I have not responded yet. I am quite shocked actually. It was never about academics, it was about behavior. Any bad grades he recieved is only a result of his denial, refusal and behavior. (Lol..I look at that and that is probably the reason anyone gets bad grades!) "I can't do it", "I am not going to do it", and "you know what you can do with it". Those are his most common responses. Ok. He can do this. Right????
