Did I do the right thing in allowing them to stop the mainstreaming?

My 15 year old son reads at a kindergarten level. He was diagnosed with ADHD at 4 years old and then tested at 9 years old and was diagnosed with mild retardation. He is in a regular physical education classroom and has no physical limitation. In fact he is excellent in several sports. I have spent numerous hours per day doing work with him and it seems as though he no longer wants to learn from me. The schools went from mainstreaming him to putting him in guided classroom. I don't know if I did the right thing by putting him in the isolated classroom. This past school year was a little better where I saw little progress, but it seems at the end of the school year he went backwards. Did I do the right thing by allowing them to put him in an isolated lass with children with physical and other disabilities?
