real parent power

A post up at the Daily Riff is titled The Parent Trapped and it has an interesting -- and rare -- story about a parent that won a customization within the public system for her child.  It was at her expense, but this parent won an accommodation that many can only dream of and this is a post worth reading.  The editor notes at the beginning:

Editor's Note: This guest post for The Daily Riff resonates with so many stories we've heard from parents who are frustrated by the pushback of true parent involvement by the system - which includes administrators and teachers who feel threatened by parents who can intelligently advocate for their child's best interest, and who may suggest options outside the status quo "system."
