You are right Cheri, different parents think differently. Since I am an oral teacher of deaf I was always able to help my kids with things they were not able to get or understand in school. So for me it was important that my children had role models like themselves in their lives because I knew if their teacher didn't catch something I would at home. But that is me. I can see where other parents want to make sure that their child's teacher was able to hear everything and catch mistakes. Different things work differently for different chidlren and families.
