OK, in my 7 years of teaching I have NEVER been called the a word, the b word or the w word by a student. The parents are aware of the situation as well as the principal, sp. ed teacher, and sp. ed director. No parents have complained as of yet, but I fear that complaints are the only way this will be solved. The student really needs an aide, someone to sit with him and remind him of his behavior. I brought this up in the meetings we have had with everyone, but was told that "we don't do that here". WHAT??? EXCUSE ME??? So we are putting 20 students educational futures at risk because you don't want to provide an aide for this student. Of course, no other ideas were given to me at the meeting as far as interventions. The principal has given corporal punishment and suspended him for the remainder of the day. Does anyone have ANY ideas on how to deal with this? I feel that I am at the end of my rope in this age of test scores, I can't teach with him cursing and running around my room.
