Deafhood and Deaf Educators

Some Thoughts

(p.372) Chapter 12 Second Response Deafhood and Deaf Educators
Deaf around the World

Paddy Ladd

Oxford University Press

The author uses chapter 12 as a jumping off point to talk about deaf education in general. The chapter opens with the value of Deaf educators in the deaf classroom, and argues that deaf education is minority education and should be afforded the same attention. The author urges that cultural education be included, and laments the dominance of medical procedures that threaten Deaf culture. The deaf child in a hearing world needs a safe environment in which to develop a healthy identity that will allow for a strong education and the ability to find a satisfying, productive place in the worlds they must straddle.
