Oz: A Day of Lock-Downs and Breakdowns

Today was one of those days when the complexities inherent with resolving to teach in an exceptionally challenged school, with an exceptionally challenged student body, to an exceptionally challenged class of special education students, hit me like a ton of bricks.

Today, Oz hit a record degree of instability.

Oz is no longer just my classroom.

Oz is the entire school.

Due to anonymity concerns, I elected to not post details. I had to think long and hard about it, and just decided that it wouldn't be prudent. Believe me, I wish I could discuss every surreal event that transpired.
