Re: Dyslexia and cheating at school

Rants are fine.

As a teacher in a Polish school, I am also in full agreement with your sentiments.

Re: Dyslexia and cheating at school

Not in poland, It means lazy kid or an easy way to cheat. 70% of people all over the world that take FCE and have Dyslexia are Polish but only 7% or FCE takers are polish. That is bad, very bad.

Then again nearly every Pole has a Masters degree.
Which they worked harder than the rest of the world to get according to Poles.

Re: Dyslexia and cheating at school

Dylsexia lures KO!

I was a French teacher in a Kent secondary school which had a high proprtion of "dyslexics". Strangely, they could spell well enough in French. Many spelling problems came about through bad teaching methods in the early years of schooling. In particular, the presentation of too much text work with too little support and consolidation. In short: rushed, slapdash language work.

I also taught in a prep school (private primary school) in Surrey which also had dyslexic students. The "magic bullet" was hard work, emotional support and reading aloud for all - but in the non-threatening environment of being alone with a retired teacher listening.
