Read some of the educational journals - it is a disaster what they are doing to these kids treating them as guinea pigs.
Now you have the deaf adults who could give a CRAP about introducing Deaf children into the fold. ASL will die a quick death with the apathy. If it wasn't for hearing adults .... nothing would be done for Deaf children around the country......I've come to the conclusion that is a good thing.
Check out the scores - the lowest belong to the deaf school.
and you know the selections of the students in VSDB? How did they get there?
