Next week's question

17th November 2006 at 00:00
Should I give a disproportionate time to one child in my class? He is in the process of being statemented. His father is unhappy that I can't give him all the time he needs, but that would be to the detriment of the other 29 children. The top groups aren't being stretched because I rarely get to work with them. What should I do?
