Think that's hard and selfish, I for one really don't care.
Jackie is also a teacher for the deaf so I was appalled when she called the deaf children who go to the deaf school "bad" according to what she heard from others. To me, that shows lack of compassion for those who can't "make" it in the public schools. Like they r beneath the oral sucesses and that is one of the many reasons I dislike this philisophy.
