Hi John! I went to the Michigan School for the Blind from September of 1947
until June of 1960. I felt that my schooling there was useful, although I
lived in Lansing, where the school used to be, and I lived only eight blocks
from school. A cab took me back and forth to school up to the 10th grade.
When I was in the 11th grade, I walked back and forth to school for a while.

Hey all. I have updated my podcast. The current edition of John Moore's Audio Blog talks about a documentary filmed at the Texas School for the Blind that I saw the trailer for. I comment on how I feel about the project and I explain why I am going to nominate the filmmakers for an AFB award. The podcast for September 3 will be an interesting one. I will talk about the education of blind children. I will talk about how I feel about how blind children in regards to how teachers treat them, using role models from my own school life as examples. September 4 will be a very, very controversial podcast for a lot of people. I will talk about schools for the blind and why I think they do not work and why they are not good in educating blind children. It will raise a lot of eyebrows and I will probably get hounded by a lot of people. However, I need to get this off my chest. I have been thinking about this since graduating from TSB and I feel it is time I talked about it.
