So here is the big story.
Per new 504 guide lines he is supposed to have his work given in sections (chunked). It's an ADD thing.
So she sent him with a NON chunked test to a free teacher so he could do the test in a quiet room (this part is no in specifically in the 504).
That teacher (who I ADORE) thought they had the CHUNKED version of the test and couldn't locate it.
My son said he would prefer to do the one the LIT teacher had given him-which he did and scored a 58.
This teacher is in charge of LITERATURE and COMPREHENSION and called this incident a REFUSAL.
BTW- the teacher who was actually present said he was not rude or disrespectful when he stated that he would rather do the one that he had.
You can only imagine the email I just sent.

You have to be nice first. When that doesn't work, you can be mean. Once you've been mean, noone will believe the nice anymore. So be nice, even if it hurts.
More life lessons from Anita:
There are some things more important than physical survival. You've got to be able to look yourself in the mirror.
Guns aren't designed for comfort. It's one of the few things that are worn by men, that are as uncomfortable as a pair of high heels.
Change is inevitable and leading change makes it positive. Availability is not a qualification. Hope is not a strategy. Potato chips are not a vegetable, and hot dogs are not a meat. Feedback is a gift, and anyone who "unfriends" you on Facebook because of a disagreement wasn't truly your friend at all.
