man with cerebral palsy told he cannot pass journalism course because he cannot do shorthand

I just came across this piece from Scotland, and I am suddenly appalled. A nineteen year old man with cerebral palsy has been told that he cannot pass his journalism course because he cannot do shorthand. I find that absurd: he's fine at everything else, but because he cannot physically write using shorthand, he can't pass. That's a bit like me failing Film Studies because I can't physically handle a camera. That this sort of thing still happens these days is frankly utterly ridiculous. Do any professional journalists still use shorthand these days anyway?
