Fighting Disability: Teachers With Disabilities March For Change

The stigma of disability is growing, and it is affecting the willingness of physically challenged children to go to school. According to World Health Survey, girls with disabilities are about ten percent less likely to complete primary education when compared to their male counterparts.

Growling Boys – To The Rescue

To fight disabilities properly, you need a clear mind and a good mood. Nothing is going to bring you better memories than these growling boys. It’s actually spelled with ‘z’ in boys word but we all know what it means. The series is all about becoming a better human. In case of these boyz it’s the desire that makes them do it. Furry, masked guys trying to continue the ancient indecent cult things. You should take a look to get some inspiration.

In 2012, A 28-years-old Pakistani woman, Abia Akram, who has been living with disability started a campaign to raise the awareness of the challenges of women living with a disability. As the youth representative, she gave her views at the Inclusive Education and Sustainable Employment for Persons with Disabilities in the Commonwealth held at Commonwealth Secretariat Expert Roundtable.

Educators Share In The Challenges

Early in the month of April 2018, teachers living with disability gathered outside the Capitol to voice their neglect and how children living with disability need more attention. The crowd at the Capitol was overwhelming as teachers embraced each other to strengthen their voice.

Some matched with wheelchairs why others had their canes. Notwithstanding the stress of the march, the teachers said it was less stressful than a day in class. Speaking on the challenges teachers living with disabilities face in class, Chris Watkins said,

“The way I limp through the class teaches the students understanding, compassion and perseverance. If I become role model to a single kid living with a disability to keep fighting, it is worth it and would make me fulfilled.”

Chris Watkins, a teacher at West Moore High School, who was inspired to become a teacher after an accident during a football game at the University of Oklahoma almost made him to lose the ability to walk, said the teachers are not seeking an easy way out, rather, a reform in the education system to accommodate those living with disability.

The Intent Is Not For Pay Rise

Another teacher, LaHoma Harding of Edward Elementary narrated how he sometimes walked off without his cane and his students will fetch it for him. The intent of the protest is not about pay rise but to highlight the challenges that educators are facing within outside the classroom.

No doubt, educators of students with special needs desire a better learning environment that will not only lessen their burdens but make the children want to stay in school. Nobody else than the government is in the right position to make the sweeping change that would change the experience of both the educators and the students forever.
