This is slightly (or way) off topic just had a conversation with a kid upset she made a 2090 on the SAT's. She intends to retake the test because she did so bad. There are still a large number of kids who are going to really blow the world away. The ones with drive just amaze me.

I have never said I was talking about all the schools in the U.S. I have never said I was talking about all the schools in California.
I keep saying that I am talking about schools that I have first hand knowledge of.
You said I generalize because I state that the few bad schools in my area have the same thing in common - they are not doing the same things the good schools are doing.
And yes it is systemic, all the bad schools are not doing the same things the good schools are doing.
What is wrong with me pointing out that the all bad schools in my area are not doing the same things all the good schools in my area are doing?
I keep asking why all bad schools in my area are not doing the same things all the good schools in my area are doing?
What is wrong with that question?
You said parents should get together, organize themselves and be proactive in making the changes. So I ask what seems to me to be a reasonable question "Why all bad schools in my area are not doing the same things all the good schools in my area are doing".
What is wrong with asking that question?
Now that I am older and can not move as good as before I go on the internet and try to get something accomplished.
At which time you tell me to get off the internet and stop trying to get something accomplished.
Yes he was LEGALLY eligible to accommodations but without going to a lawyer most parents do not know what the school is required to do.
No the the school did not offer any information.
Yes the school just stuck this kid in special ed, no staffing meetings, no testing.
Yes the school has some serious legal issues.
Yes you can sue but most find it a lot cheaper to move* and quicker to move**.*$5,000 to $10,000 to hire a lawyer**Two to three years to fight it out in court. Most places you are lucky to get a court date in the same year that you file.
CA. Education Code 48222. Attendance in Private School
(Local district authority over exemption)
Children who are being instructed in a private full-time day school by persons capable of teaching shall be exempted. Such school shall, except under the circumstances described in Section 30, be taught in the English language and shall offer instruction in the several branches of study required to be taught in the public schools of the state.
Do you know every legal requirement of the Education laws in your state.
Only problem is when I try to talk about the few bad ones I'm told I don't know what I'm talking about and should shut up.
Try to talk about the problems in my area and told "You don't know about the schools in Ohio so you need to shut up".
No you did not get organized (70's and 80's), did not help make the schools in my area better, did not go to the meetings, did not go to the schools, did not talk to the teachers etc and you do not know the problems of the bad schools in my area. So maybe you should shut up.
