I got an email this afternoon just after Robert's school let out for the day. It let me know that Robert had been using improper language at school and he got very upset when he found out the teacher was going to e-mail us. Robert does tend to get upset when we get emails about his behavior. When he uses bad language, he has to look up good words in the dictionary and write them down in his best handwriting. This has honestly helped him a lot by increasing his vocabulary and improving his handwriting. The handwriting that was illegible at the beginning of the semester can now be read! This afternoon, when Robert got home, we were talking with him about what started him being disrespectful to a staff member and he told us the teacher grabbed him by the throat and drug him back on the elevator because the class got off on the wrong floor! Robert said he was the only one who got drug back on the elevator but the class was there (the class is about 8 kids). He said he was told not to tell anyone about it (along with the class) or he would get in trouble. He told his teacher in the next class what happened and the teacher did not believe him and told him to sit down. We questioned him several different ways and were not able to poke any holes in his story, so we are convinced he is telling the truth. I immediately got in touch with the principal of the school but she will not be able to let us know anything until after 1230 tomorrow because she will be off campus, so Robert is not going to school until we get answers. I have also notified our special ed coordinator to see what can be done. Robert has marks on his neck from this and has asked us if he is in trouble for telling us what happened. He also insists the teacher will punish him when he finds out he told. Home school sounds pretty good right now for him!
