UK Disability History Month
Disability History Month takes place every year in December and celebrates the lives and achievements of disabled people. Schools are encouraged to hold activities about disability equality during the month of December.
A presentation given at the NUT Disabled Teachers’ Conference 2012 on ‘UK Disability History Month: How to get your local schools involved’ can be downloaded here.
Are you an NUT member? Do you consider yourself to be disabled? Would you like to join our growing network of disabled teachers and be put in touch with other disabled teachers nationally and in your region, to share experiences and provide support for each other?
The debate about girls' and boys' achievements is not a new one. The NUT has long campaigned for gender equality in the classroom from the early years to post-16 and in the teaching profession.
