When No Child Left Behind has gone too far...

PumpkinPie brought home homework today.

"Count the shapes and circle the correct number below. Then color the pictures."

Pumpkin has been in school for a grand total of five days in her life. She barely walks. She barely talks. But she can do homework?!

Oh for the love of Pete!

Hey! She's gotta be "proficient" whatever that is. Welcome to the wonderful world of special ed gone mad.

For what it's worth, I put a note on top of the worksheet that read, "Pumpkin is not capable of doing any of this assignment. As an alternative, I do read to her every day."

I'll let everyone know if I get a response tomorrow. Should be interesting if nothing else.
