I have a perfectly normal child who can speak and communicate at home. A year ago, at age 4, he started a Dutch school here in Hillegersberg. He has been refusing to respond to anything that's said at school. Not only Dutch... Of course, they tried to talking to him using his mother language. And they failed. He is just smiling and playing around as if no one else exists.
The school director finally said, "Sorry, but we have to accept your child to be an idiot and he should be sent to a special school. We are not able to do anything. If there is anything to be done it is your responsibility".
My son is trying to cope with the school totally ignoring it and the people there. And at home, he is a normal kid. And he is about to be classified as an idiot.
What would you do?
(PS. Why a Dutch school instead of British or Amercan? Simple. I cannot afford it)
My response: It must be hereditary, we were the IDIOTS that sent him to your school.
Second response: Sir, it takes an older much wiser adult Idiot, to acknowledge an Idiot at age 4, I congratulate you on your insight.
Third response: No, he is not an Idiot, he is just naturally inburgered into the dutch society.
Fourth response: You have a good point, and you comb your hair around it very nicely.
Fifth response: See what happens when we let him watch late night parliment debates!
Sixth response: What do you expect, Rita's his hero!
Seventh response: I knew it was an idiot school and you have suceeded in an extraordinarily short period of time with my child.
Eight Response: Special school? Aren't you special or just below average?
Ninth response: We tried a Special school, Oxford already had thier fair share.
Tenth response: Our child is in a special school filled with love and caring, this is called our Home, and it is horrific to think we need to place him in your incompetent hands a few hours each day.
