Here's the thing. He never got a single conduct mark. He wasn't disruptive. His grades were good. And he is a February birthday (one of the oldest kids). And after that he never had a single issue, either at PBS or elsewhere. And nows he's in the Magnet program and on track for Baton Rouge High.
It was a money grab. Pure and simple. And they thought we would acquiesce.And I lost my shite in the Principle's office and they backed down. And his subsequent development has vindicated our judgement.
And here is something I left out :
Not only did they recommend it, and we said no---BUT WHEN WE WENT TO LOOK AT THE 1ST GRADE LIST TO SEE WHAT CLASS HE WAS IN-HE WAS LISTED IN KINDERGARTEN. THEY WERE GOING TO DO IT WITHOUT ANY FORMAL AGREEMENT OR DISCUSSION-JUST ON THE RECOMENDATION OF THE TEACHER.
To say I lost my shite is an understatement.
