My nephew, who is in high school, lives with me. The main thing I have learned in my years dealing with the schools is that schools are mostly interested in getting you to bend to their will and are not very interested in working together with parents. I think it's a symptom of crowd control. There is no room for individualization when you are trying to get hundreds (or thousands) of kids and families marching in the same direction.
