What is the name of your state? Indiana. Have any of you heard of educational guardianship? I was told by the school that I want my child to attend that he could attend their without paying tuition. We live three miles outside of the school corp after moving and they told me that if I have a friend or relative that I could make them my sons educational guardian. I guess what I want to know is if anyone has heard of this and is it legal in the state of Indiana. I have joint legal custody of my child with his father and do not want to get into trouble over this with him. He wants me to enroll our daughter in the corporation where we live now because she did not do well last year in the same school. The school thats where we live is smaller and has less children per class. My daughter was put in learning disability classes last year.
My ex is very upset about this because I have to admit it was not because she is not intelligent. She just has a hard time dealing with a situation where she has to compete for the teachers time. In LD there is a lot of one on one. Plus she does almost all of her homework in the classroom and the few classes that is not LD and she has to do her homework at home she does not want to do. She is very willful and refuses to cooperate with me or my ex when we try to get her to do her work. He is upset because he says she is just spoiled and thinks she has to be the queen of the ball and that I am not helping her by giving her a crutch she does not need. He also told me he knew for a fact that when he helps her with what homework she does have when she goes to his house he knows she passes with flying colors and he does not give her the answers but makes her sit and do it. She is an only child and is used to be the only child when it comes to dealing with adults. She does not get along well with other children unless they submit to her ideas and wants. He told me that because I am not making her exist as other children do that I am actually giving her a disability. He wants her placed in the other school and says that she should be in regular classes with other children. She has been tested and does not have an attention problem medically I think it is just a lack of applying herself. Anyway He says because he has joint legal custody that I have to let him know what I am doing and that I need his permission if it is something that is not good for our child. What do you think the court would say if he were to push it?
