So difficult child got expelled for one year in March of 9th grade for selling drugs. The school for expelled students is through the juvenile court system and he tried it and was appalled; quite a different socio-economic group. The other students were literally gang members with "D" tattooed on their hands for Diablos. One did not know how many inches in a foot and most lessons were directed to that level. difficult child's counselor recommended on-line school since he would be too far behind academically when he gets to go back to real school in a year. I'm not thrilled about it but have few options. He is and unmotivated student who does not care about school. Or anything actually. Anyone else do this? Got any advice?
