My children go to a wonderful public school. It's a One room school house with 2 teachers, 1 aide and about 30 kids. We made the choice to send our kids there when our oldest started school 9 years ago. I have always been very happy and felt that the teachers work very hard to work with every child and their individual needs. My ds is ADHD and they helped us work through it with him and figure out the best course of action. My two oldest have since moved on to middle school. I now have a. Kindergartener and a 3rd grader there. The problem is this year there has been an influx of new students, some who didn't do we'll at other schools and some that are new kindergartener. There are 3 or 4 of these children who are huge behavioral problems, they Are very disruptive and require about 95% of the teachers time. Very little is getting done because the teachers are having to spend so much time on these few children. So now I'm feeling like my children are missing out because these other children are requiring so much time and attention. These kids are way beyond what the school is equipped to deal with. There is no special programs, or office to send them to, they Are just in the classroom creating havoc all day. I do know that the teachers are trying to work with the parents and doing everything they can do to solve the problem. I feel like the administration needs to get involved .
So my question is does the needs and desires of the " problem" kids to be at this school out way the needs and desires of the rest of the class to learn and get attention from the teacher or should the school district move them to a school better suited to handle their special needs?
