Favorite phrases and definitions

"I model silent reading on Tuesdays and Thursdays."= this means that she reads a book silently in front of a class of about 20 students to show them what quiet reading looks like.
Are you serious? Please..... This one was obviously a tenured teacher. No one else could have gotten away with it.

This was a special ed class taught by a special ed teacher; we got him out of that nightmare. She got back at us though by making up lies about our kid at a transition meeting to HS.

"No, you can't have this accomodation it isn't in your IEP. You have to ignore the test being read in the back of the classroom." = SO WHAT? It is being read anyway just let them listen to it. What, you are gonna give them earplugs? Give me a break.

"A special ed "A" isn't really an "A"." = school principal said this one.....so what is it then?
