Mom Questions Why 3 kids Expelled from Elementary School

Posted: Updated:

    Like their mother and grandmother before them these three kids attended Kashmere Gardens Elementary.
    "My kids have gone there since day 1," Tashika Brown said. "My daughter is 10 she's been going there since pre-K."
    And it's her daughter's behavior problems this mother believes is the reason why all three of her kids were shown the door.
    "They really don't want my granddaughter in school," said Shirley Brown. "They say she's disrupting the class."
    The almost daily calls from the school to mom and grandma dealt with the same issue.
    10-year-old Donisha Arceneaux's behavior.
    "Just any little thing," said Tashika Brown. "Like she's talking out loud she won't listen they feel like if she talks to herself it's a problem."
    Upon the school's urging Brown had her daughter tested.
    "She was diagnosed with ADHD, the bi-polar slash depression," said the mother.
    Even the 10-year-old says she could see the writing on the wall.
    "I already knew she was going to do me like that because when she sent me to the office she already told me I wasn't going to make it to the 6th grade because of my actions," Donisha said.
    Brown said she thought her daughter's diagnosis would prompt school officials to put her in special education classes.
    "But that didn''t happen," Brown said.
    Instead the mother said the school kicked all 3 of her kids to the curb saying it was due to an address issue.
    While mom lives in Northforest I.S.D. the kids live with grandma Monday through Friday and use that address for school records.
    "I went and got an affidavit proving where my kids stay Monday though Friday and she looked at it and she didn't accept it," Brown said.
    "They always used this address ever since they've been in school," said their grandmother.
    Whatever the reason the outcome stays the same.
    Three little kids now have no school to go to.
    "It brings shame on me and my family," said Donisha.
    So what does H.I.S.D. have to say?
    They wouldn't go on camera opting instead to send us a two sentence statement that reads, "All H.I.S.D. schools are legally required to obtain proof of district residency for all students. In this case, that documentation has not been provided."
