This is more of a parental issue, but since it deals with No Child Left Behind, I can see this immediately going to PRSI, so here it goes. I'm asking for input, especially from those of you who are parents of children or have actually been through the program as to "what would you do?" My wife's and my decision is already made on the matter, so I'm just wondering on what others would do. But here's the problem: For one reason or another, your child has qualified for an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). The reason for that qualification could be anything from as simple as speech delay to an actual disability. Whatever the reason, your child has qualified for it. Prior to the school year starting, you receive a letter in the mail stating that the school in question has entered Program Improvement (PI), as for 2 consecutive years, the school has underachieved in both the state's standard and federal standards as defined by No Child Left Behind. They also are offering, should the parent request, to provide transportation at no expense to another school during the time that the school is under PI until they meet federal and state standard (obviously, when they meet the standard, transportation will not be provided). They list you the schools that offer IEP, in which they also state that those schools have also underachieved, and are under the same situation as the current school. This leaves you a choice of those schools, or moving out of the school district to another one that has IEP, and has met or exceeded state and federal standard. The question I have is: what would you do? Luckily, the child is young enough to not have any true friendship ties (yet), but does have a bit of sense of trust in the teachers they are with. Would moving be too much of an undertaking just to get your child the proper education and feel comfortable that the teachers and school are providing it to the best of their abilities? As the child isn't old enough yet, charter and/or private schools are out of the question. But what would you do? Leave them at a school where they are definitely getting the help they need, while the school is failing under NCLB, or pull them and move to another school district (if another is available)? BL.
