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.

  1. Are they going to replace it ?

    Out of interest, how would you have tackled this if it had been say, a keystone brick in a building ?
