I took my son out of the regular high school and placed him in an independant study program. He has always has trouble academically, and the regular high school had him in college prep classes and he was receiving straight F's. They refused to change his classes. The independant study program is becoming very frustrating for him, and for me. He is having trouble understanding the work in English and Math. His teacher just tells him to read it and he will "get it" but that is not the case. Now he wants to just drop out of school... and is refusing to even do the work in teh subjects he excells at (Science Geography). I do not know what to do anymore. I am tired of fighting with him. I am tired of having meetings with his teacher, who says what she thinks I want to hear and then never follows through. He is supposed to have instruction twice a week for an hour each time... and I can count on one hand the number of times he has been in there more than 15 minutes.
He is not allowed to go back to regular high school, and I am out of options. Any feedback would be great. He is 16 years old, and I'd just like him to get an education.
