How the world changes – What is Polio?


At present we are reading ‘the Julian Chapter’ of  Wonder.

In the book one of the characters was afflicted by polio and as a result has deformed legs.

I had heard of polio through my parents. Born in the 1950s they knew kids who suffered from Polio.

Yet for my students Polio is unknown.

They were even more incredulous that the developer of the vaccine did not patent his findings but instead gave the world a cure for a disease.
