  • Well, all I can think of is to not take the principal's word for whatever the superintendent (supposedly) decided. Talk directly to him/her, and bypass the principal, since s/he clearly doesn't want to help you. I'd think the principal would want you to go to a different school though, if she doesn't like you guys. Something smells fishy here. There is no reason whatsoever that you cannot meet with the superintendent directly.

  • Go to the superintendent. I know of someone else that switched. Please do not be intimidated by the principal. Move on and do what is best for dd.

  • I find it amazing how people who are supposed to be so educated, can be so ignorant and judgemental. My oldest daughter, was adjudged a troublemaker and class nuesence in grade school. Knowing her better, I fought with the principal for months trying to get her into more challenging classes and kept hearing that her test scores did not warrent that. I finally broke through to someone that would listen and she was moved up on a trial basis. Her test scores and attitude shot way up.... night and day difference and she stayed in advanced cources all through schools. I've always thought of teachers ashaving a hard and noble job, but it seems like these days it is more about pompous attitude. I still give kuddo's to the teachers that care and I hope somewhere in time that can be the norm again.
