Judy2/CA I would insist that the principal move my child to another kinder class and if he refuses I would remove my child from the school. I don't know what other schools are available in your area but I would look at private, charter etc. That may seem drastic but she is scared, shaking, crying - I can imagine how hard it is for you to send her to school ...See More
