Placement Committee

I have received an “invitation” to attend the meeting of the “Vaadat haSamah” (placement committee) next week, to establish Ricki’s school placement for next year. This will be the first time I am attending this meeting NOT aiming for integration, and not potentially at loggerheads with the committee. So I should be calm, serene, etc. But I am not. After years and years of having to fight tooth and nail for anything and everything connected with Ricki’s education, I am stuck. The mere words or thought of the placement committee sends my body into “fight or flight” mode......
