I guess this is a vent post.
Interesting. Our district uses push-in for services in the classroom and pull-out for services outside the classroom.
Push-in services are provided in the classroom as opposed to taking a child out to work them in another setting. She comes in 4-5 days a week for an hour during writing and there are 3 children on IEP's with services for writing.
I'm sorry, but not all states use the same lingo.
Boy do I know this all too well.
How old/what grade is your child?
It actually DOES help to be the squeaky wheel at the start of the school year, esp with a new teacher.
