    special education

    I am a special education teacher who
    works at a Charter School. My children are
    behavioral, emotional and learning
    disabled. I have a question in regards to
    the rights of a teacher, do we have to put
    with children cursing andswearing at us?
    Is it against the law to suspend or expel a
    child with speical needs for whatever
    reason (emotional, learning, mental
    retardation, or behavioral) when they come
    to school doing whatever they want?
    Children these days know that they
    technically they cannot be suspended or
    expelled if they have an IEP and if they
    are that they can choose wherever they want
    to go, becuase then it is their present
    school that is responsible for the
    transition. Is there a way to change this
    if it is the case? This is a horrible law,
    we already do not get paid enough and no
    matter how much you love your children and
    are dedicated to your job, there are some
    things that are just not acceptable. Their
    behaviors need to be corrected not accepted
    just because they have a "behavior"
    problem. Is is common for teachers to feel
    this way and what ever happen to children
    being afraid to have their parents called?
    It is just amazing to me that society
    accepts these behaviors, and is so strict
    about the rights of children regarding
    education! I would love to personally
    remind these legislatures, and law makers 2
    things: 1- without teachers, they would
    not be employeed (doctors, lawyers etc..
    included) and 2-unless one has currently
    taught in a public school in special
    education, one should not make any laws for
    any general state or city--hence, they are
    not teaching currently or previously.
    Any advice or help that you have woul dbe
