This chapter explores the context in which bilingual deaf education came to flourish in many countries in the world since the 1980s. It also discusses the philosophy of bilingual deaf education and its foundations. Subsequently the chapter describes similarities and differences in objectives and programming and explores the educational settings in which bilingual education was established (school for the deaf or co-enrollment program). Finally, it discusses the issues that currently are at stake in bilingual deaf education, causing an overall decrease in its popularity.

Keywords:   bilingual deaf education, co-enrollment, school for the deaf
