Came out of a 2.5 hour IEP at Tommy's school. The goal was supposed to be to get a clear definition of Tommy's placement for high school. At the end of the meeting 5 minutes was spent describing the lack of placement options in the high school, the infelxibility in the main stream teachers and their unwillingness to work with special needs children, and the fact that Tommy will spend most of his time in a CDC classroom with extreme behavior problem children. The administration did not write a thing down on the paper as this was described. The nice politicians are very good about creating only the "proper" paper trial. It's lawsuit time!
