Thread about gove and schools.
Knew I shouldn't post but did.
And, of course, as expected, sen/sn kids get too much money and time spent on them!!
Really!?
Not ime.
Ffs.

"Badvoc at our children's school the only parents who get to see a teacher after school are those with SEN and the only kids who anybody wants to push are those with SEN or those in danger of not getting a 4 in Sats.

I really resent the idea of punting kids out of classes in order for those already in extra small groups getting extra booster classes to have even more.

Fine I sympathise if you have an Sen child but subjecting others to a shed load of disruption when Sen parents argue for inclusion for their kids is simply unfair."

I don't want mainstream inclusion for my kids. Particularly not DS1. I want him sent to a much more expensive school with specialist teaching and tiny class sizes where he doesn't have to be lumped in with 20 neurotypical kids and all their petty social rules and smells and noises, all of which cause him a lot of distress.

I had to resist the urge to reply with that.

Badvoc Sun 19-May-13 14:47:08

Oh please do!
I am beyond rage at this point and no longer coherent....

^ What ouryve says^

Note to self - sit on hands. Do not respond

FanjoForTheMammaries Sun 19-May-13 14:52:32

People are being particularly shitty all over MN at the moment.

It's not even a full moon either.

FanjoForTheMammaries Sun 19-May-13 14:54:04

Don't even waste any energy being angry at someone so utterly ignorant and selfish.

(Need to take own advice I know)

Badvoc Sun 19-May-13 14:54:16

So it's not just me then?
Was worried I was over reacting.
People actually believe this shit, you know.
The believe that sen/sn kids get all the money and time and resources.
<hollow laughter>

FanjoForTheMammaries Sun 19-May-13 14:55:03

Not just you..that is one of the worst posts I have seen on MN about education.

FanjoForTheMammaries Sun 19-May-13 14:56:07

My DD's school place is expensive.

Lucky us that she is so disabled or she would be like these poor able children grin

Badvoc Sun 19-May-13 14:57:55

sad
Am so sad, and angry and fucking disappointed.
And people were saying what a great post it was!
Ffs....

rosielou678 Sun 19-May-13 14:58:17

I'd just started to type a reply in the thread - but deleted it. Def time to sit on hands - I'm already enraged by the crap 'system' and the way our children are treated - responding to such posts would just enrage me even more.

Best to ignore such ignorance and go get a cup of tea instead!

FanjoForTheMammaries Sun 19-May-13 15:00:33

I may have said that on the thread.

Oops wink

Some people are selfish bastards who don't know they're born.

rosielou678 Sun 19-May-13 15:02:40

Funny thing was I'd stayed of MN because I'd heard it was so judgemental. But when I finally decided to post on this forum (after months of lurking!), I found it to be the exact opposite. MNSN has been a lifesaver to me in the last couple of weeks.

I'm staying put!

FanjoForTheMammaries Sun 19-May-13 15:03:37

This forum is great.

Main board MN is appalling these days IMO.

Badvoc Sun 19-May-13 15:16:17

Argh...I'm getting sucked in!....
sad
MNSN has been a lifeline for me Rosie so I know what you mean.
Must remember to hide Aibu and education topics from now in!
HE board is fab too, as is my post natal group.
Gah!
Can't believe his upset I am about this....

FanjoForTheMammaries Sun 19-May-13 15:20:21

Don't let a few Tories get ya down

Badvoc Sun 19-May-13 15:23:55

Ha! smile

PolterGoose Sun 19-May-13 15:24:08

badvoc and Fanjo great posts. I've hidden it as I just don't have the stamina today to do battle. And I shall hide this thread as well so I don't click the link smile

FanjoForTheMammaries Sun 19-May-13 15:26:21

No stamina here either. .DH has been away all weekend!

Nil Carborundum Illegitimi, I say

AnotherAlias Sun 19-May-13 16:37:02

....having seen coverage of NAHT conference generally - I would urge anyone with an ounce of common sense to volunteer as a school governor - seriously - I haven't read the other thread (I'm cross enough) - but I am not surprised that mums* are up in arms about the carry on - if these are the people running schools in general, I think my kids have been exceptionally lucky ...*(even if they also happen to be cowbags about SEN children)

....I might go and have a little look...

Badvoc Sun 19-May-13 17:20:16

sad
I need to detach I really do...
But that isn't going to happen is it?
smile

AnotherAlias Sun 19-May-13 17:37:12

Aw - really thought for a minute there, Badvoc, that when you asked about statements that Blue would be outed as the SENCO for her school...

(she's not as far as we know ;) )

I'll get my coat....

Badvoc Sun 19-May-13 17:39:20

I know....I know!
I bet she is sad
