Katie Hopkins Tweets Disablist Scribble… I Respond From Experience

May 16, 2012

For a disabled person, Katie Hopkins has some very strange views on disability. She may have had her first epileptic seizure after she finished her perfect, private mainstream education… but still… there’s no excuse for a disabled person Tweeting this:

 

To which I responded:

 

So take that Katie Hopkins… now F*** off and join the BNP… oh wait, you’re disabled…

    tbf I have no problem with separate systems provided they’re actually designed to give disabled children the extra help and support they may need to excel and where it would be impossible to give that support in a mainstream environment rather than being little more than ‘the law says we’ve got to keep you n education until your 16 so we’ll ram you in this holding pen that looks like a school but we won’t actually teach you much if anything.

    As a Deaf & Disabled teacher now working in a mainstream school’s Deaf / Inclusion area, Charley’s initial message is correct. I am a product of both systems all through education and post-16, and have experienced strong and weak elements within both systems.

    However, local authorities, rather than following good practice in a consistent level with neighbouring LEAs (joined up thinking), tend to ignore Deaf & Disabled recommendations in their cutting back services.

    Comments like Katie’s seem to back LEA’s moans about SEN costs without checking the impact assessment without the support (which would cost even more consequently in all areas of health, social and education within the council).

    We need available Deaf & Disabled professionals to be more included within the LEAs and regional bodies to enable better use of support and access within both discrete and mainstream learning throughout the UK.
