Nadia Clarke: Choices
Nadia describes talks about restricted subject choices.
TranscriptWas there any time at school when you felt you were not included? Can you give an example?
I remember it was difficult doing PE, because there were things I couldn’t do and it wasn’t very inclusive. I remember in year 9 my teacher and support staff said I could no longer do History because it was too hard for me, I don’t know why, because I loved to learn about history. I really wanted to do GCSE Media, because I was one of the best in the class, ha, ha, but I was told the exam would be too hard for me. I sort of didn’t mind, as I was already doing four other GCSE and I can’t do everything.
