Subject:Frustation

<HTML>I have just this year moved to Europe and the school I am going to has not followed my IEP, I was at West Virginia State College for two years and my average GPA was a C, I moved to the school I am attending and I am failing three classes at midterms. One teacher will help me and my Geology teacher and Math teacher are telling me to drop their classes. I have 15 sememster hours and you have to have 12 hours to stay on campus. I asked my couselor why I was failing these classes and she said the teachers hadn't read my IEP. This make me mad since we meet with her and the Academic Advisor a month before school started.

<HTML>Erin,

I am moderatly to severly LD along with having TBI. I managed to maintain a 4.0 average because all I did was study study study. I also had instructor who's heads were not up their asses even though the rag running the disabilities was nasty. I learned how to learn. I went directly to my teachers from the get go and dispensed with the usuall psych-babble BS that attempts to describe brain dysfunction and told the I got hit in the head too many times and therefore my brain ain't quite up to par. It worked in most cases. I smelled the politics right away when I went to the students with disabilities office. It didn't take long for me to realize I was dealing with a butt plug with a phoney baloney job and a phoney title. ACCOMODATION!!!! Get real girl!! You"ll have a better chance of finding the tooth fairy Easterbunny and St Nick.</HTML>
