You guys know how they try to balance the classrooms? Well, several teachers have told me over the years, that my child is the child they use to balance table groups and classes (when deciding who gets which teacher). For 4 years he's been in the same class with a child that drives him crazy and worse, when they switch tables, this kid is often placed with my son. Today, ds broke down weeping telling me he can't deal with being the kid who always gets the not-so-good table because he's the one who can "deal" with the students others can't. Not one time this year did he get placed with any of his friends.
So, here's the thing: it's the end of the year and I'm not gonna say anything but I don't think it's right that kids like mine have to bite the bullet every time to accommodate this kind of problem. He's not a perfect kid by any means but I don't want him doing this again for another year. Any suggestions? Do I just ask the teacher in the fall to be mindful of this? I guess I don't know what to do and I feel badly for my kid.
