Well, I got in a confirmation yesterday in the mail with some instructions ... plus a change of location. They moved the class from this nice school (which is a learning environment) to the rec room at an area park ... not a great area either, I might add. I've been there as Kevin has played baseball at that park. The rec room has a noisy a/c (and Kevin has auditory problems.) The park is busy ... lots of older kids playing basketball on a Saturday morning/afternoon. The restrooms for the park are located inside the rec room, so there would be people in/out all day. Not only is that a distraction, I personally don't find it very safe. I was FLOORED to say the least. Now, I'm less than 10 days from the first class ... but I am NOT sending my kid.
I sent a fax this a.m. and explained that this is NOT the program I signed him up for, had this been disclosed from the beginning (or at the very least, when I called on the 14th) I wouldn't have signed him up (or I would have cancelled within their time frame.) They're not in today, but they'd better not give me a hard time. I 'think' that signing him up for this class constituted a 'contract' (offer/acceptance and all of that) and by changing the venue, they essentially changed the contract ... don't you think? SO, they 'should' give me a refund without giving me a hard time. I really hope it's simple 'cause I am not in the mood for a fight. BUT, I would never have spent nearly $300 for my kid to sit in a rec room at a park for 2 1/2 hours on a Saturday. THAT, to me, is not an environment conducive to learning (especially with some of his challenges) ... but I'm very disappointed as I was hoping this would have been a really good precursor to middle school.
Am I wrong in expecting a refund?
