in this county can botch everything? I just got a letter about difficult child's education while he was in the detention center (for 2 weeks). I thought it was going to be a transcript of grades. LOL, I know. Now, difficult child had said that they thought he was in high school already (he's in 8th grade) and had given him GED type tests to see how he did and he passed the math GED. This could be true. He said they also gave him other tests on a different day. I just got those results- no transcript- so maybe he got no education while there. This kid might have to take 8th grade over due to this carp. Anyway- he's behind grade level in reading and half-way through 8th grade level advanced math- also considered borderline behind for that. Why? They tested him for being in 9th grade. What morons. I can only imagine where they got the idea that he was in 9th grade instead of 8th- since the detention center is in the same school district as his home school district but detent gets it's info from court services unit.
