My SIL is a teaching student and got a job in a classroom. It is a regular classroom, not a special needs class. My SIL has charge of a severely autistic boy, who is 6. She has to do everything for him from getting him into the classroom itself to helping him eat his lunxh. Until she started helping, the teacher was spending 99% of her time with this child and had to ignor the rest of her class. The boy is non-verbal and very violent. He bit my SIL twice in one day, leaving marks both times.
As a parent of non-special needs children, I don't understand why a parents would want their child to be holding back an entire classroom of kids just so they can feel like their child is "normal" because he is in a regular class, not a special needs class. I don't understand how a school would allow a parents wishes to interfere with what is right for their child. I don't get why the parents of the non-special needs kids who are learning nothing in school aren't so pissed they don't just move their kids to another school.
I know that the parents of the special needs child will sue the school if they feel their child is being "discriminated against" when the school suggests that their child be put in special needs class, but come on....This is ridiculous. The boy can't talk, can't function, can't even not BITE the teacher's assistant. He should be in a special needs class where he can be treated the way he needs to be treated. His parents must be so selfish. There is no one they are doing this for but themselves.

If a school can't afford to pay a special needs teacher, they shouldn't take in special needs children. Period.
It is a public school. They can not deny ANYONE.
