Update...

You will, I hope, be pleased to learn that the administrators in our school district have realized that, yes, they were on the verge of violating federal law with my student about whom I wrote last week. So she is back in class, and hopefully there will be no more problems. Poop heads. So there's something good that happened this week.

I am pleased. She's lucky to have someone like you to make a fuss!

Oh thank GOD. I've been thinking about this... the poor kid.

Although... this is the college counselor in me saying this... tell her to hold onto that story for a college/scholarship essay. It would make a good intro for a number of different essay topics. :-/

Wonderful. As a bonus, this young lady will now feel safe and comfortable coming back to school, knowing that someone there is on her side--making it less likely that she'll turn to someplace she shouldn't. Glad you helped your "brilliant" administration see the light!

Then you kicked up a ruckus on the kid's behalf, right? Hurray!

Good for her. I wonder what the administration expected her to do about schooling though...

Yes, I am pretty pleased, but I really didn't do much except suggest the magic words.
