    I disagree with pp about their opinion of a real teacher. There is no such thing as a classroom full of "normal" kids for starters. When you have a child that clearly does not need to be in a regular classroom you are not doing that child any favors and they are not being treated fairly, by the parents. Putting a child with disabilities does not make the other kids want to be with them. I have seen where children will pull away from children who are to hyper, aggressive, or have nothing in common with them because of a difference in their mental age. A child should be taught in an environment that is best for them, not best for what mom or dad want them to be. A parent should want what is best for their child to learn to be all that they can be. The child with the disabilities can suffer a lot of sadness and rejection by not being with children that are like him. The origional poster had to be tactful but honest with the mother. It's real hard but it's really only a fair way to be. This area is truly one of the hardest parts of teaching for me.
