Autistic teen offered $86k to stay AWAY from CA school

autismAs is the case with frustrated parents of autistic children in the Inglewood Unified School District (IUSD), many school sites are failing to the follow the established and legally binding Individual Education Plan’s (IEP’) for special needs children.

Parents have fought with principals, teachers and IUSD officials, to no avail.  Aides designed for the special needs students are instead assigned to the entire classroom and not giving one-on-one attention to the student their higher pay rate pays for.

With IUSD privatizing yard duties to Playworks, special needs students continue to be bullied and taunted on IUSD campuses.

One student, in Yuba City, CA is also on an IEP and his school offered his mother $86,000 to keep him AWAY from the school.

How will our Governor Jerry Brown and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson respond?  I know Torlakson stays busy staging photo ops in Compton, he needs to bring his ass a few miles west to Inglewood and check on the district his office currently controls.
