Stacy:  My son’s teacher wants to move him from her class without my permission. I have stated that she is not to move him until I say so and she said it wasn’t my decision and she was moving him without my consent. He currently has an IEP in place and we are scheduled to meet in a week. Can she legally do this?

My sons JR high math teacher said this in our last IEP meeting: ‘I’m sure you parents will sue me if your son doesn’t get an A or a B in my class, so I refuse to have him be one of my students’ (the principal actually supported this jerk and caused my son’s entire schedule to be changed around, defeating the purpose of keeping to a consistent routine) My

It appears that you were going to ask a question. For almost any question in this situation, I would suggest contacting the district special ed director.

Oh my god!! I am going through the same thing. My son is in 5th grade and his teacher just hates him. She makes him sit by himself facing the wall surrounded by cardboard. He stims because of his autism and if he does it during a test he gets an F. She has dumped his desk out in from of his classmates and screamed at him to clean it up. She does review games and she puts in him on a team. However if that team gets extra points he does not get them. Now she has decided to remove him from her classroom without my permission. Why is she being this way? Why does she not care about his rights? It seems that she values the other students more.

Stacey I know this is year old but I felt the need to comment. You need to find out from the teacher why she is removing your son from the classroom. As Chuck said states may allow this. I also wanted to figure out why you would want to keep your son in a class where the teacher does not want him? She has clearly stated she does not want him in her class. It makes no sense to me and I believe that keeping him in the class would damage him because he would be stuck with a teacher who would probably retaliate against him. Just my two cent.

State & district rules & law might allow this. You would need to research this. Your state parent training & information project can assist you. http://www.parentcenterhub.org/find-your-center/
