I know it's wrong to judge, so venting here- My student has autism and a lot of sleep and behavior issues. She barely participated during distance learning. Now that we are back in person, her parents opted to put her in independent studies. That's their right, and they are doing what they think is best for her safety because it's hard for her to wear a mask. She is missing out on sped services, but again, I'm not into judging. I went to drop off some papers at their house and turns out dad is a massive covid denier. Multiple people in their family have died, but he doesn't want to send his daughter to school UNTIL THEY FIGURE OUT IF COVID IS REAL! I just listened to him and nodded. I adore this little girl, but she is not my child. It's not up to me. I just stood there being polite and thinking he was crazy. SMH. Hope that she and her family come through this okay. Hard not to judge. I'm trying.
