Honestly, it is the issue that this matter is thrust upon parents during the last quarter of the school year. We haven't had 6 months or a year to deal with this & prepare our children for going into middle school. One minute, they are planning on being the "big kids on campus" the following year and the next minute, we are being told that they might be going to middle school after the last 7 weeks of this year are up. That's pretty mind-boggling for many people. I went to the meeting. Overwhelmingly, it was the fact that this was not expected, at least not in this hectic manner, that upsets the parents the most. Changes happen. That's life. It's the rushing the whole thing through that frustrates so many of us.
