Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I thought long and hard since last Wednesday when it was shown. I am NOT impressed with it. It showed audism and paternalism in some ways. It is NOT balanced and not in tune with Deaf community. The last part should have been edited out. There are missing parts of Deaf community NOT shown on television. It actually defeats the purpose of educating the public. It leaned too much on oralism and cochlear implanting.

Why focus a lot of time on Clarke School? What about other schools? Sorry to say it sucked BIG time!

There is a need to tell truth about Deaf history. The program did not shed enough light on that part.

So it is back to the drawing board to do a better job next time!
