You would think that the school board would have informed people before they purchased the children.

I would love to know what exactly they mean by "physical defective"

Change that to mentally defective and it could be from today's Times.

Except change the 15,000,000 to 50,000,000. Then you'd be spot-on in the mentally defective department.

They call it "differently-abled" now.

And we're being convinced that underperforming is "ok" if not even preferable. -ohbfrank-

Morons > Imbeciles > Idiots, just for future reference.

Imagine if they still referred to them like that now. Or they could call them trainables, just like the 70's

But is Morally Helpless better or worse than Insane?
