Cerebral Palsy Grassroots Organization-San Antonio, Texas

This is a grassroots organization that anyone living in the United States or Canada, that is the parent of a child with cerebral palsey, or a person with cerebral palsey may join.

My son has been through the education system in both countries as well, and I can tell you that both educational systems fall short when it comes to educating children with physical disabilities. I am now currently homeschooling Morgan since the public school systems in both Canada and Texas have done a great disservice to my son. He is supposed to be in the 9th grade here in Texas. I am testing him now to see where he is academically and it is turning out that he is only at the 5th - 7th grade level in everything but Math. In Math he is only at the 3rd grade level. The public school systems have passed Morgan only because of his age, not because of his academic abilities. Honestly I think that the administrators believe that my son's brain is in his legs.

On the following pages you will find an area in which to submit your stories about yourself or your children in the public school system. Please tell me how your child or yourself did in school, and if you have done the same thing I did, withdrawn your child from the public school system to homeschool please tell me that. I am currently trying to collect data to find out the trend that I have heard is happening. I have heard that there are a number of parents pulling their children with disabilities out of the public school system to homeschool them because the public education system has not taught them. If you have done this please send an email detailing your story to the email address below.
