Blind-Sided: Experiences From Behind the Glass Eye: My Life and Times at the Halifax School for the Blind by Chris Stark

Day to day life at a residential school for the blind is at the core of this publication. My formative years growing up with other children who are blind was: sometimes cruel, violent, harsh but always segregated away from interaction with "normal" children. A regimented institutional life that gradually weakened from harsh oppression to enlightened incarceration culminating with rebellion and a drive for integration. This biography of my formal schooling ends with life at university where Iused the knowledge obtained at school to earn two university degrees and at the same time participate in a group of former like minded students of the Halifax School for the Blind to end, what we saw at the time as shoddy and discriminatory Abuse of defenseless little blind children. We used our good academic education, survival skills, drive for independence, self reliance and determination to make a positive difference.
