I just feel that everything is muddled now. Politicians see deaf schools as a huge expensive thing because it shows big dollar bills on the paper, while they don't see the expenses on paper when it's spread out in public education system...
I would be more than glad to discuss this but I feel that you already know most of my story and I'll be biased as all hell.
But if you have any questions, just hit me up.
Do you believe that the ASL-based environment is the same back then (before SEE/Mainstream came along as you said) as it is now? Education wise? Social wise?
