Celebration of Success: Phyllis Kohl Coston
"You are stupid"; "My little sister in second grade reads better than you"; "You go to the Retard Class." These are the taunts heard by the people whose stories you will read. Some teachers and counselors added to the problem by remarks: "You will never go to college," "You need a vocation in which you can use your hands," "You can't handle a college prep course," "College for YOU-You are kidding yourself," "No college will ever accept you."
