My children were in public schools. In order for me to keep my sanity, and for them to get an education, I took them out of public schools and sent them to a private school. It was moving out of the dark into the light. It was a financial challenge, but I decided their education was my gift to them. What a wonderful experience they had in middle school and high school. The school encouraged the upper classes to tutor the lower classes, either during lunch or after school. Both my children participated. They both loved the school and the teachers, and I was so grateful. Gone was the stress from having to deal with public school administration hacks, and teachers with attitude problems. If you can't afford private schools, homeschool. My daughter was homeschooled for a while, and it brought her and I closer together. We experienced many adventurers that now, as an adult,she recalls as cherished memories.
It's not going to get any better trying to deal with the system, so make a change. It will be the best decision you've ever made, I promise.
