Hearing on the Effectiveness of Education for Deaf Students at the Local and State Level. Hearing before the Subcommittee on Select Education of the Committee on Education and Labor. House of Representatives, One Hundred Second Congress, Second Session (Morganton, North Carolina).
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
This transcript of a Congressional hearing deals with the effectiveness of education for deaf students at the local and state levels, in the context of the reauthorization of the Education of the Deaf Act. This Act provides for, among other things, the establishment of a study commission which concluded in 1988 that the education for persons who are deaf is unacceptably unsatisfactory. Prepared and oral statements from the following people are included: deaf high school and college students in both integrated and special school settings; an administrator of the National Association of the Deaf; special school administrators; a North Carolina state education administrator; and a college professor.
