So, with chapter 3 talking about the decline in residential schools for deaf children, what with the laws mandating free and appropriate education in mainstream schools, I was wondering what everyone's opinions were? Say if you were to have a deaf child, would you prefer a residential or a mainstream school?
I think I would want to send my child to a residential school, or at least one that was geared specifically towards teaching deaf students. That way they would be exposed to other deaf individuals and would be taught deaf history/ more about Deaf culture.
