I saw this story on television when I was at the land. It was a very moving story and I like how the father stood up and made his son watch the video and apologize. It is amazing to me that a father can do that with his son, but a Superintendent will not do that with his employees.

Special ed demands go unmet | The Columbia Daily Tribune - Columbia, Missouri

The Tribune's View of June 15 suggests that if there were a problem with the smaller number of students receiving special education services in Columbia during the past five years, there would be an outcry. If that opinion were not so naive and tragic, I would laugh. Consider this an outcry! As an attorney who has represented hundreds of disabled children in special education situations over the past 22 years, I know a tremendous unmet need exists for these services in Columbia and most other school districts.

We are parents of children with special needs. Because of our children's disabilities, they have not been allowed to attend the elementary schools they should be attending. Instead, they have been seperated from their peers and placed in trailers at the Jr. High campus. We have made this video to share our frustrations, hoping that we could find some heroes that are willing to stand with us to help fix this situation.

Missouri Anti-Bullying Law

Missouri

Thanks to all of those who made me keep searching for Missouri's law.  This law was pressed in between a bunch of other statutes and very hard to find...but thankfully Missouri now has an anti bullying law with 44 others states.

This book is a must have.  Patty and Barb really know what they are doing.  They have both given me advice over the years and I appreciate all of the help that they have given me.  Barb helped me with a particular problem in middle school.  It didn't work out.  The PE teacher stated that he knew more about my son than Barb or I did.  What a shame that he wasted such precious time fighting me instead of helping my son.  Bullies come in all sizes.  The one's that have power are more dangerous than the ones that have fists.
