I understand there are laws that govern classroom size.
I understand that moving kids three weeks after school starts to a new teacher and classroom is ultimately in the best interest of the school.
But, really, did it have to be my kid?
Does this look like a kid who is happy to be moving to a new room?
I believe that eventually many wonderful things will happen with this transition. Full Speed will learn valuable skills about handling change, he will meet new friends and he will love his new class as much as his old. Maybe even more if we are lucky.
However, when life is teaching us lessons, it would be helpful if there was a nanny on stand-by to intervene at the inevitable angry outbursts of a five-year-old when change is upon us.
