These kids being served by top of the line oral schools are doing SO WELL. There's no longer a lot of kids being served from K-8.

i have to break it to you, you always attempt to make observations but everytime you do that, you fail to make a connection with any theoretical base. So, how the hell can you become a sociologist? or anthropologist, or an education theorist. at best, you make more for a 'critical audiologist' BUT without ANY references to any audiological theories!...
This is something you really need to be serious about, if you want to actualise your 'dreams', i can see your passion but its a useless one if you can't produce theories or refer to any, by that you have to actual SHOW what you understand, not what you assume!
