One more IEP to go for this Semester. One! I can see the bureaucratic end zone now, just becoming visible behind a blur of “Least Restrictive Environments” and pointless signatures.
Hard to write much of a blog when one is writing so many IEPs. There’s the time-consumption element, sure, but even more than that is the writer’s block impact that comes from viewing and creating so much educational boilerplate mumbo-jumbo.
There really should be a new line of fortune cookies produced with random snippets from IEPs alongside the “lucky numbers”. Along the same line, it now strikes me how similar the wording of IEP “goals” and such is similar to the typical astrology forecast.
It also strikes me that I’ve never written about these heinous beasts before. Maybe when the finish line is actually crossed I’ll get around to a few words on the countless words and meaningless process known as “Individualized Educational Plans”.
That said, just typing the consecutive letters I-E-P makes me sleepy. Maybe not such a riveting topic. Now off to yet another less-than-riveting 7:45 a.m. IE zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…snore, snore…
