Re: Another wwyd about school...(kids not college)
Since you said she did well last year I would talk to the school and see if switching classrooms might help. I would also speak to the teacher and to the principal about paddling without calling you first. I would exhaust my options first then I would look for alternate schools.
Do they do magnet schools in your state? That might be a possibility although you may have to home school this year and work hard on getting her grades up if they have academic requirements. Or if you always wanted to give homeschooling a try this might be the kick in your pants to give it a try. I certainly wouldn't let the situation stretch out for too long if you haven't made progress within 2 weeks it is time to pull her.
