Paul Harrison: Limited Teaching
Here Paul describes finding a higher standard of teaching when visiting the mainstream school.
TranscriptOne year, me and another girl, I was ten, were sent for a two-hour class to a local mainstream school to learn everything the hearing students were doing. I was more fulfilled in the hearing school as the teaching was of a higher standard than the deaf school, where teaching was very limited. I had more confidence when learning in more detail along with the hearing students.
