"She is adamantly opposed to it because his handwriting is not as refined as other children and because he still draws stick people."

If it is any consolation, my handwriting didn't really reach par until I took a drafting class in high school and I still managed to do just fine. It is good for a teacher to be aware of these things as potential signs of challenges, but micro-managing kids does them no favors. Different kids hit different stages at different times and some kids have different strengths.
