Mainstreamed as an only deaf student whole my life. I transferred to a school for the deaf in my HS junior year then a year later I withdrew and returned to my public school.

To be honest, nope! I kinda wish I did... I almost had the opportunity back in high school but at that time, I didn't think much about deaf institute til I came to RIT. Cuz a lot of my friends knew each other from deaf institute. I thought that was kinda awesome especially when I only graduated with three of us (deafies) in my senior class.

Myself with whole life with mainstream classroom and went to school for the deaf for short time due no interpreter include moving too much place to live. I think that deaf school is not my happy educational because I meet them in couple of deaf that doesn't know what deaf culture is all about. Like why should we pride to be deaf. I am not going to say the name of deaf school. I am kind shock when I found out about it.

I won't start on with my continuous promoting of shutting residential schools for the deaf in here... :D

I've had been in a residential school for the deaf for many years, not by my choice, but never had to worry about living in the dorms. I was part-time mainstreamed in a high school nearby. I believe that my parents were victimized by being brainwashed by the two hearing then administrators they had trusted, because they were from the same town and they knew each other since they were little children....

old day was tough to find an interpreter in small city-medium city. Had to fight with ISD location for them to find someone from anywhere to move there. That what my mom did, she was great - bigger support.
