Homeschooling in California

Well a lot happened last week. I had an IEP. Some were surprised because I homeschool. I am homeschooling through a charter school which receives public funding. This allows G to continue to receive speech therapy as well as consultation with a learning specialist.

At the IEP the school psychologist asked me "are you sure this is the right placement for your son?" It was all I could do not to bean her with a paper wad... of course I think its the best placement if I didn't, he would be at public school. How would you feel having a total stranger question your parenting decisions???

Anyhow, G has made huge improvements this year and the SLP let everyone know it. So long story short I can still homeschool.

THEN a California judge decided that everyone who homeschools needs to be under a private or public credentialed teacher. Because CA is of course known for its excellent schools... This week a lawyer reviewed the status of our charter and we are within legal limits for now.

It's my son's three year IEP today...

I'm trying to relax, only had four cups of coffee so far,

As usual the school and I don't agree, say a prayer for me...
