Contesting Visions at a Japanese School for the Deaf
Hayashi, Akiko; Tobin, Joseph
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v46 n4 p380-396 Dec 2015
This paper tells the story of the struggle to introduce a Japanese sign language program in a school for the deaf in Japan that until recently had followed the government's approach that emphasizes oral communication. Our method and conceptual framework is ethnographic, as we emphasize the cultural beliefs that underlie the three competing positions on deaf education that are in competition at Sapporo School for the Deaf.
