J is not going to school. Long and unedifying story short, the teacher at the small alternative school where he had a place at the beginning of the year here in Marrakesh decided after 10 days that she was not going to let J come back. Without any discussion whatever with me, without my being aware there was any problem whatsoever, she decided from one day to the next that he was too difficult and that his impulsivity posed a security danger to the other kids... I will spare you my thoughts about this woman and her way of doing things; suffice it to say that one of the lessons for me is to listen to my intuition because from the beginning of knowing this woman, about a year, I have felt she lacks compassion, warmth and patience. All necessary qualities for working with a special needs child, right? J was obviously hurt by such a violent rejection. I have tried to limit the damage as best I can. In the meantime... I have found a tutor who comes for an hour or so a day and other than that... he is not at school. I obviously have to leave Morocco, where there simply is no other possible school for him and feel as though I have to go the UK, where school provision for special needs is better than in France. Part of me wishes I could have the courage of my convictions and not send him to school at all... I realise we are both terrified that the same thing is going to happen somewhere else, that he will be kicked out because of his behaviour. He learns best one to one. Could it be possible to carry on with just tutors, I wonder?
