Sorry, Not Sorry

Last night I wrote a scathing email to school that used the words "disability discrimination" and "due process." This morning I apologized to teachers and direct care staff for having to write that email, and assured them that I love them, Flynn loves them, and I know that they're awesome and they are doing the best they can.

I hate this pattern. Why can't kids get the help they need without the bureaucratic interference? If I have to push this hard to get, at best, mixed results, what happens to all those families without my substantial resources and education? Can't we leave decisions about individual children up to the people who actually see those children every day?
