FORELAND SCHOOL SIGN UPDATE
SCOPE have been incredibly helpful. They fully understand why a parent of children attending a school for learning and physically disabled students might feel upset about the continued display of sign which uses terminology which is now used purely to insult, demean and abuse people with disabilities. SCOPE have told me that they are very happy for the offensive sign to be removed from the wall. I would like to thank SCOPE for their understanding and sympathy and for adopting an uncompromising position on respect, dignity and human rights for disabled people. We need more organisations like SCOPE who learn from their history and challenge old fashioned prejudice and bigotry.
