I am glad to hear that I am not the only one who has such a hard time with the special education official. They are very evil. When they walked into the IEP's, they already have their minds set, and they pretend to listen, but not really. This is one of the reasons I pulled my child out of special ed. Yes, there are many impatient special ed. and regular teachers who act like jail guards, have no love for children and should not be teaching. Special education children need profesional, loving teachers.

Frustrated mom - I agree that special education children need professorial, loving teachers. I think that all kids need caring teachers, and professorial school/district officials.
I'm very sorry to read the experiences described above.
I wonder if $ considerations are impacting the way Social Inclusion is being implemented, resulting in comments above? One possible example of a way to cut cost could be reducing aide support when not appropriate for a specific kid situation. There are many other ways.
