    Special Education High School teacher I have see this for the last 3 years.  The charter schools take the SPED student as a freshman and the money for the next 3 years and voila.  

    For some reason the senior mysteriously goes back to the public school campus he/she was to attend 3 years earlier.

    All of a sudden I had to get these students to pass the State Mandated Tests to graduate.  

    One student took a freshman English class three times. Not to mention the kid had to attend summer school all three summers to make up credits.  The student came to us short of credits to be a senior.  The student said he just did not like that school anymore.

    After three years the kid does not want to graduate with the kids he was with for three years?  

    I don't think so.

    Psst!!!......Mittens you are more of a poor loser than I thought.
