My question is, what's wrong with the alternative school? Usually alternative schools and classes have smaller student/teacher ratios (smaller classes) and people better trained to deal with various disabilities including ADD. Your child may well be getting a better education there then he would at a regular school. With 20-30 students in a class, teachers at the regular school may not be able to give your child the attention he needs. When a teacher has a large number of students, she (or he) must be able to give them all relatively equall attention. A regular teacher probably will not be able to help your child as much as he needs help right now.
