Disabled People’s experiences of education over the last Century
Maresa MacKeith: Pink Shoes
Maresa was born in 1984 in Sheffield. She was adopted as a baby and moved to Nottingham. At age 5 she went to a special school and then left at age nine and attended mainstream primary and secondary schools from then on, with a year of home schooling between two secondary schools. She then attended a local college and went on to university.
I remember there was a little girl who always wore her favourite pink shoes. Her name was Jennifer. She would stay with me and play at lunch but I actually don't know what she thinks of me. Does she remember me? It's nice thinking about her now.
