Oh I agree...I'm not saying ALL teachers are to be blamed. There's some teachers that sucks.
Some teachers try to teach us at a lower "grade" level as hearing peers, and I find that insulting to our intelligence. There's a very small group of deaf people that learned Shakespeare in HS. The rest, learned "Where The Red Fern Grows", or some 5th to 8th grade books when they're Seniors. Some of the teachers have very awkward sign language skills and it's an impediment.
Other teachers I absolutely love.
