Collaboration and System Change: Pepnet 2 and the Road to New Opportunities
Annarino, Pauline
Odyssey: New Directions in Deaf Education, v17 p52-57 2016
For more than a century, professionals, parents, deaf individuals, and students--who are involved in education have discussed the question: "How should deaf education change?" Today this question continues to dazzle and frustrate. All of us want deaf and hard of hearing students to have higher achievement across academic areas and to fully participate in the world around them. Yet too often test scores remain unacceptably low, and our students are not empowered to take advantage of the resources that would allow them to participate fully in the world around them.I n order to create different outcomes and for change to be successful,professionals, parents, deaf individuals, and students must embrace two fundamental tenets: (1) The change must be system-wide; and (2) Collaboration is essential.
