From what I have witnessed in classrooms, it is best to not pair up such a student with a teacher if the student is verbally targeting the teacher as it could lead to physical violence. The student may need FAPE in another teacher’s classroom. Yes, the student has rights and need support. Some teachers put up with a lot of abuse at times–this case sounds like this teacher has some rights to assert and I don’t blame him/her for asserting those rights in this day and age of school violence. Verbal abuse is a form of violence also and can cause emotional trauma. How would it make you feel to be verbally abused while teaching day after day? I have seen this and teachers end up resigning. Teachers need support when it comes to abuse like this.

State rules could allow this. The district is still responsible for providing a free appropriate public education (FAPE) for the child. Your state parent training & information center can assist you. http://www.parentcenterhub.org/find-your-center
