Poor Greg. I hope things work out better for him some day.

This is a great story!

Poor Greg...great first post. You could do a blog just on student stories alone! Of course, it would have to be anonymous!

since that will post correctly, let me put the code in with spaces (remove the spaces and quotes to get it to post the character: "& # 241;"

That sure is a good post -- from someone who's "not a writer!" ;-)

What would the parents have to say about this incident?

As a fellow teacher, I feel your pain. And you'll do fine at blogging. Welcome!

Have you considered dyslexia as the culprit of Greg's problem with reading? If he's dyslexic, he does not need Special Ed -- he needs a multi-sensory approach to reading. And he needs it ASAP or he will just end up being another statistic . . .

Has Greg been tested? He sounds like he might have some attention deficit problems. If he needs "patience and tutoring", he can get this in the special ed program. Do what you can to get him in there so he can feel some success and have a more positive attitude about learning.
Show the parents the benefits. As a parent, I know it's a difficult decision to make, but special ed can help many kids, the earlier the intervention, the better.He may even need medication which could help him, ALONG WITH the extra help.

Using your numeric keypad, type 241 while holding down the "alt" key. You should get your as easy as pi.
