Cause they've knocked him down to half days anyway. I went in today to shadow difficult child and his para, like I did yesterday, and was pulled off to the side for a meeting. Despite seeing that the para could have intervened and did a very poor job and thus ticked difficult child off which resulted in him hitting her, and because he was violent again, he can't go to school all day. I'm perturbed. Besides that, during that meeting, the "sort of" para took difficult child to music, and in the 20 minutes he was in there, he fell apart and had to be put in the safe room. They told me to step back and they'd handle it. I waited 10 minutes and he kept screaming. I finally went to the door and just took over. I had him calm and out and back in class in another 10 minutes. They told me to be let him stay the rest of today so I can explain tonight why he'll be leaving early. I was his para for the rest of today and the other paras watched me. I did. We had no problems at all the rest of the afternoon.
