Now, to speak to the case of a child that was struck by the school... that used to be expected of a school. I don't know of the circumstances but I can say as the foster parent of a 6 yo child who frequently causes his regular classroom to need evacuation, regulalry destroys the principals office, kicks, spits on, bites, punches, and scratches the school faculty, a small amount of corporal punishment would completely change this kods behavior. As it is, if my child were in his class, I would have them removed due to danger and frequent disruption of teaching. As it currently stands, the school can walk him to an empty room and stand outside the open door telling him he is not allowed to leave until he writes a 5 word apology. I don't know what the answer is for your child, but I do know that the major contributing factor for the misbehavior of both the autistic children I am around and the foster children I have is a complete lack of consequence and punishment for misbehavior.
Two basic models have been articulated so far: a few very often, trusted helpers, with deeper relationships, or more kids rotating through in more piecemeal fashion, perhaps for a fee. Both seem to fir the OPs ideas of sharing our abundance (and perhaps the two should be better thought of as on a continuum.)
That's one axis for us to think about. What more choices are there to consider, relating to the OP's idea?
