    Default Right to go to school?

    California Public School Offers $86K to Keep Autistic Boy Out - ABC News

    Should this mother accept the money? Should the public school have to accept the young man?

    I think I'm going to get too emotional about this but holy crap! This is bull crap. They are required to provide an adequate education to him OR they pay another school directly to take him if they can't support his needs and his IEP.

    As a mom, I would be high tailing it out of there. This school is horrendous as are their teachers.

    The comments on that article are a joke. "Mom just needs a break". My rear end. I like it best when my daughter is home. Going to school is what benefits HER...not me.

    I had to stop reading when I got to the part about the teacher force feeding him to the point where he spit the food out and then making him eat it until he vomited. Seriously, W.T.F!?!?! Imagine a teacher doing that to any of our children, let alone one who needs a little bit of extra help. I just can't even. I would come completely unglued. It sounds like he would be better off elsewhere, but only because that school is so insanely awful.

    I'm so confused. Why does she still want him to go to that school? They sound horrible.

    Well he only has a school year left or less. Transitioning to a new school is very traumatic for kids on the spectrum especially since it involves such a short amount of time.

    More traumatic than being force-fed and ostracized?

    I couldn't even open the article... Robbie is high functioning so I know I don't have to deal with this type of crap but WTH. I would be pulling my kid from the school. If I had read the article I know the comment section would have made my blood pressure sky rocket. I know I have it easy compared to most parents with kids on the spectrum and there are times when I want to get away from Robbie but to suggest the mom only sends her child to school so she can have a break....

    Trust me, if it was my dd she would be pulled no matter what. I'm just thinking that might be why mom is doing it.

    Hopefully also, to shed light on such a poor school.

    I'm not understanding what the mother wants in this situation. I would not agree at all with insisting that he remain at that school if thats what she is trying to do.

    While i can't understand where this is going (I would gladly take the money and send him somewhere else)....the reported behavior on the schools part is appalling.

    I mean, from the sounds of it, i think there should be much larger consequences for this school than just having to pay for him to go elsewhere. Maybe thats what the mother is in search of? Either way, i hope he does not return there.
