    Anecdote ahead. Forewarned and all that.

    Yesterday a g-school mom was complaining to Lydia and a certain Regular Reader here at H&OES that the school had been really inattentive to her SpEd son. She’d been threatening to homeschool him, and the edu-crats were doing everything in their power to dissuade her. All through the month of September, the school claimed he “needed” to be in school for “socialization.” Then, suddenly, at the beginning of October they changed their tune and told her to go ahead- maybe homeschooling would work for him.

    In Delaware school headcounts for the whole year are based on enrollment as of September 30th.

    The head count is very important, but also depending on the child’s disability, the school district receives extra money for that. That money can run in the ten thousands.
