Frustration

Jordan has been back at school for about 5 weeks now.  She is doing great and enjoying being with her friends and being a kid again.  The problem is that the school department now wants to take her tutoring away.  I for the life of me cannot figure out why since she has missed like 100 days of school.

So I started calling the Assistant Superintendents Office because he is the one that made the decision to stop tutoring.  After calling 4 times I wrote a letter to the Superintendent, which I had planned on mailing yesterday.  Well my husband decides that he is going to call and low and behold he gets a call back in about 5 minutes.

I was really what the hell I have been calling for 2 weeks now and I am getting no where you make one call and puff they want to talk with us.  Well the Assistant is at a conference and his secretary needed the information regarding our concerns.  I called her yesterday and explained the situation.  She told me "Oh, he is going to call you husband back tomorrow afternoon."  Again REALLY.

I am a Stay At Home Mom so I can take care of these things.  First, my husband is working and doesn't need to  be bothered. Second, my husband is working and doesn't know everything that needs to be talked about. Not because he doesn't want to know, because I am the one who is talking with the school and going to the meetings.  My husband and I talk, although I spend more time with our daughter than he does and I know what she needs.

Now I am fuming because this Assistant is totally ignoring because I am a woman, a Stay At Home Mom, who must not know anything.  Well let me tell you, I know enough and I have now started writing many letters.  I do believe this is the last straw for me.  Now only am I fitting for my daughter who needs extra help and I fighting for my son who is top in his class and totally bored at school.

I think this Assistant should have thought twice before pissing off this mom.  I will not back down when it comes to my kids so watch out!

That just isn't right!

Who does this woman think she is anyway?

I have on two separate occasions had to find a Math tutor myself as the schools failed to find one for my daughter when they said they would. Both times I found one with VERY LITTLE effort.

We homeschooled last year and it was the best thing I ever did. Such a low stress level compared to school because you can do things YOUR way.

We won't get into it here why she's back in public school- let's just say it has something to do with the opinion of an "absent father"...not my choice!

Anyway, I'm visiting from CafeMom.

I have a few blogs- if you feel so inclined, check out one or two!
