I came home from the Hamptons tonight to find a letter from the Manhasset School District...
They REJECTED my IHIP - that's essentially the homeschooling plan I submitted for Prince C-Nut.
They say they want more detail from specific text books that I am going to employ.
I believe the law is that I have to provide a list of texts OR a generic *plan of instruction*.
They might be breaking my balls; or they just might not be acquainted with the laws. (Or, I might be mistaken as well.)
Paul Mitchell gets his wish!
See the comments of - Homeschooling - Required Paperwork.
Now, after a few deep breaths, I have to figure out the tone of my response.
I could surely list a couple of textbooks for them....but I don't want to set any precedent for the future. I want to do the minimum.
And if they insist on breaking my stones....I'm going to retaliate in my customary fashion - *over the top*.
You know, one of the nicest compliments I ever received came years ago from my obese cousin.
He said, "If you shoot a BB at (C-Nut)....he returns fire with a nuke!"
