Queen of the run on sentence!

I'm not sure if this belongs here but, I got a call from my daughters teacher today and she told me she was concerned that she was over her head in her class. My daughter was moved into her class a couple of weeks ago because she was too advance for the current special ed (SDC) class she was in so they moved her to a SDC class that was more advance. This decision was made after an hour of listening to everyone telling me that the curriculum would be right for her and they felt she was ready. Now she's in over her head, the lower SDC class is to low and this one is too high so she is falling in between the two classes. I'm at my wits ends and am thinking maybe I should just home school her, but I don't want to do that because school is the only social outlet she has right now. Does anyone else feel like the schools treat these kids like they are expendable? I am not talking about the teachers they are great, but why should my child be transferred from one school to another, a "normal" child wouldn't be required to do this! By the way the lower end SDC class only has so many slots open, and since my daughter left that class the class is full (on a continual basis), so that is not an alternative, even though I don't want her in there, my daughter has a learning disbility , these children have learning and emotional disabilities and function on a considerable lower function than my daughter. Sorry for this being so long, and thanks for letting me vent, this is so frustrating, can anyone give me some advice I really need some.
