Hey Dee. I know I'm not Heather, but I wanted to let you know that Heather and some other Volunteers are away at a conference through Sunday, and really won't be around the boards much if at all in that time, so I hope you don't mind me asking - have you considered talking with your school counselor? A lot of times they can be really great resources here, especially since there may be times when you'll just need to be away.

I don't think you are! I don't think I would want to be in class with a rapist! I don't know the details of your situation... did he assault you? I would REALLY not want to be in that class then, in fact that should not be allowed. Why are they allowing him to come? Rape is a crime! You shouldn't have to go to school with violent criminals! I second Stephanie's suggestion of talking to a school counselor.

It's not an overreaction at all honey. What you're feeling is normal, and totally valid to be feeling. (Teacher moment: If the rape did not occur on school grounds- or if it did and he was not charged/found guilty) then the school really has no choice.

Everyone in the US, by law, is entitled to something called FAPE, a Free Appropriate Public Education. Should something happen in school he could be forced to go into an alternate education school, but the school district pays per child... so that's why if it's not one of the cases listed above they WILL let him stay, to keep from having to pay the fee (and the court fees should the parent NOT want their child sent).

Something to think about though, is if you're finding you can't work/function in a classroom with this person is to see about the chance to have classes changed. It's late in the game, but they may consider it knowing the circumstances.

Dee,

I, too, agree with Stephanie. Also, do you see a therapist/ counselor to help with your past issues? If you do, then maybe they could assist you with your school if talking with the school’s counselor doesn’t help you enough.

I certainly agree with them. A school should be conducive for students to learn not a place of treat or a place to be afraid of. The school's staff should be aware of this.

Your parents should talk to them about this. Anyway do you have bad experiences such like this? then you should try to seek help from school counselors and join some therapeutic programs for teens.
