He had finished middle school with a Joker put on a happy face shirt. I expected high school to be great as well. My son started coming home. With soaking wet shirts that winter. He chewed on his shirts when he was not being engaged and watched YouTube. That’s what they had him doing all day. I snuck in a few times to confirm that’s all he did. His shirts were so wet that the saliva soaked through his winter coat. Brand new shirts with holes in them and buttons gone. I started taking photos. The last time was when he was sent home this way in well below freezing temps. I sent the pics to the teacher and told her that it was unacceptable.

Best Joker put on a happy face shirt
This was after I stopped in again and saw him at the Joker put on a happy face shirt. While other kids played Wii and the staff was all sitting on their phones. No one even noticed I was in the classroom. They were that distracted. Once that came to an end, his despicable one page IEP turned into 2 pages. Not good enough, but we were thinking of moving soon and it wasn’t going to matter. That May they invited me to an awards assembly because my son was going to receive one with the other students in school for the year. I sat in that gym with my camera going. It was his turn and they called his name. Then they called it again.
