Yes. Times have changed.
Times I remember well. When I was in elementary school, I had a terrible speech problem. The teachers designated me a “retard” and tried to get my parents to send me to a school. My mother fought the city school system to get them to keep me in school – and I am so glad. Otherwise, I probably would have “adapted” to my environment.
So sad.Very profound. One child went to an institution; the other to Harvard. Life was quite cruel in those days.
