So - long story short: my son's 1st grade teacher lied at his IEP meeting, said he was on grade level, completed homework (which he didn't - I was the one who sat with him every day so I know it for a fact) and had no behavior problems in class (I produced a color-coded calendar that showed every day a note was sent home for me to sign because of bad behavior - for Feb. and March there were 3 days with no note). We also had a evaluation. that showed my kid at late K level at the end of 1st grade pretty much across the board, with somewhat lower for math. I was very ******. But that's not the point of this post. Today difficult child came home with a reading book at a beginning 1st grade level. His 2nd grade teacher has assessed him (I'm assuming) and has determined this is where he is - this is AFTER his 1st grade teacher put him at a beginning 2nd grade level the end of last year. Mind you, we read this summer and he had a tutor. He did the homework associated with-it (write 2 sentences, 5 words) and it is completely unreadable. Completely. So I feel really, really vindicated about his actual level and abilities. But also very guilty for this as well. In a perfect world my kid wouldn't have learning issues, right? But it's not a perfect world and I have been dying for someone at his *&&*$$!! school to figure it out. His K teacher did...then his 1st screwed it up royally. But the low level book shows me that hopefully his 2nd grade teacher knows what she's doing. Cross your fingers for us, please!
