And if someone has had basic addition and subtraction explained to them and they still can't do it, then I fear they might have bigger problems in life, such as learning how to dress or feed themselves.
What a revolting viewpoint to have. I would never suggest that if you couldn't do anything in my subject that you were mentally deficient.

By the time I started my NQT year, I thought I had already encountered some very weak students but I was unprepared for teaching a Year 11 girl who couldn't count beyond 20. She went "... 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 76, 94, 52, 64, 33 ...". I have never really got over the shock!
Year ELEVEN?! Good grief.
I do wonder how someone can have such a big problem go undetected for so long.
