Your responsibility as a parent is to advocate for your own child’s best educational experience. If you are not satisfied with what you initially hear, don’t give up until you are. Follow the chain of command. As we have all heard many, many times — the squeaky wheel gets the grease. It’s true in education, also. You can be pleasant and nice at the same time to get the desired results.
