i'm poor. we were on welfare till i went into a girls home. we had PAT tests. and were streamlined into classes that were based on our PAT test rankings. I got into the second top class. And was a behaviour problem like you wouldn't believe. They thought I was bored (realising i had a huge difference between verbal and math) so they moved me up to the top class. And then... After a time... They moved me back. The reason?

They didn't like me associating with the people in that class. The teachers kids etc.

I was still a bit of a stirrer. But nothing like the behaviour problem I was before... But it didn't matter. I was distasteful to them.

Of course the top class... Got all the best teachers.

I remember math. I was thrown out of the class for the rest of the year. As 'punishment' I had to go to the head of the math department and he was supposed to give me some work to do or something. He didn't teach me math. He got me covering math books with clear plastic.

He asked me what I wanted to do after school...

I said I wanted to go to university...

He laughed. And said I would be a asset to any library.

F*ck him.

But worse messages...

The worst messages I've ever heard...
Came from the mental health service.

Therapists don't need to remind me of teachers.
Not when they can remind me of other clinicians
and the things they've said...

i'm sorry
not much help...

I gave up on trying at school. Hated it. Detested it. Just couldn't wait to get to university.
