Disabled People’s experiences of education over the last Century
Zara Todd: Don’t Bother
Zara was born in 1985 in London. She attended a special school initially, then transferred to mainstream at the age of seven. She continued with mainstream education at secondary and then went on to university.
Here Zara recalls the negative attitude of her English teacher.
I remember just before I left the middle school, to add to the headmaster’s wonderful comments, my English teacher turned around to me and said that I wouldn’t get a single GCSE so she didn't know why I was bothering.
