I understand why he behaves this way. His academic skills are not on par with his age or grade. The school he attends on the outside is for children with severe behavior issues. He must be on guard all day due to his trauma. He told me he has no family and is basically on his own.
My own foster son attended that kind of school, though he narrowly escaped being incarcerated and ending up in being taught in a classroom like yours. You have all my respect for the hard work you do. — Jim
