Here is the problem my son haves only missed 5 days of school all year ,and they can not say that is why. He haves had problems with handing in home work but not because it was not done but because he missed placed it. I had a parent teacher con. in the beginning of the year. The teacher said then she thinks he haves adhd no way he dose. She was not informed about his hearing problem till then. The teachers form the year before didn't tell her or if it was not put in to he's records but we got that out of the way. She had my email and phone number and she never called or email me to let me know any thing till this last marking period. He got a award for student of the month for improvement. Then this week on Monday i get a request for a parent teacher thing and it was for Wednesday so i couldn't go because it was not enough time to get off work. I was able to go to his his class thing on Friday and that is when i found out he was going to fail she said he was not ready to be in second grade but is going to be a good first grader next year. Here is the kicker in the beginning of the year she told me his speech is having a big in-packed on in his class work because she could not under stand his questions and she have told me that a couple of other times he haves been in speech for 2 years and other then the stuff we are all ready doing like blowing a cotton ball around on the table and a couple of other thing the speech teacher haves set up i am doing all i can I even signed papers for other testing to be done,but that was at the request of his speech teacher. I think his teacher gave up on him and that is why he is failing. Why didn't she let me know sooner. I wish she would have given me her email because she was so-post to send it to me at the beginning of the year. I told her as long as she let me know he was having problems i would do any thing sign any thing to get to the problem. so we could fix it. She never let me know till now. Before you judge me let me just say this i have 5 kids the oldest gets all a's and b's the 2 haves a learning disability that we have been working hard on and haves never failed the 3 one haves all a's and scored top of his class then there is the one i am talking about here and the last one is in pre-k. I just need to know if i should fight this or should i let him go back to 1st grade next year. i just don't wont him to fall behind because some one let him down.
