On the contrary, it's because of activist parents (and the school's administrators and teachers and supporters at the state and federal levels) who fight to maintain an academic environment for those deaf kids whose local schools don't have the resources and expertise to serve them.
Stop talking about Deaf schools as if they are something that 'burnt out' parents carelessly toss their children into. Someone's ear itches and you tell them to get themselves to a Deaf school, and yet you use the most painfully insulting terms to describe those who attend these amazing schools, and you continuously degrade them in countless ways with such comments as this one. With "friends" of Deaf schools like you, we have a one man anti-recruiting agent powering away on the forums.
