  • hopefully it is a good reason
    like wanting the children to gain social interaction
    do not get social setting when home schooled

    since getting dx of of autism for my child, i have become to see the world in differnt light
    and can see things for what they are... lots of time it comes down to $
    hope not the case, but not surprised it this was the reason

  • Money they get, I believe. If that child doesn't go to school, they don't get that money.

    PS It's not just autistic kids. They don't like to lose any kids to homeschooling.

  • These parents are having a hard time trying to get home instruction for their children with Autism. There have been comments by the teachers and professionals about not being able to "control" these students. But they insist on keeping the students. What happen with the idea that educators are created to help the student to acquire an appropriate education?
