CSD ERASED ITS OWN DEAF HISTORY!

After recently viewing the Audism Free America (AFA) website. The AFA enclosed its announcement from the Clarke School for the Deaf (CSD) regarding the name change for that school and other four extended schools. http://audismfreeamerica.blogspot.com/

Not everyone happy with the CSD's decision to rename its school, especially former CSD alumnus. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Northampton-MA/Clarke-School-for-the-Deaf-Alumni-Council/44013629877

The official announcement from the Clarke School for the Deaf -http://www.clarkeschool.org/new/

Clarke School for the Deaf specialized in oral methods of educating the deaf children which Alexander Graham Bell (AGB) had deeply involved in creating this school based on ideology, not practicality for the education of the deaf.

Clarke School for the Deaf had a long history of physical and mental and sexual abuses toward their own deaf students.The school and their annex schools had systematically forbade any deaf students from using any kind of sign language or manual communication. The Clarke school faculty and staff personnels often used the wooden sticks to beat their students' hands and other known methods.

How appalling of the century-old school for the deaf engaged in revisionist history of erasing "deaf" from its own existence! See that? What happened to our own deaf existence if we let people to re-write the history of deaf over time?

  4. I attended ASD for six years during the 70s and I did NOT witness any form of abuse.

  6. Toby,

    Clarke School for the Deaf (CSD)is what I am talking about. Okay?

    Which ASD? Arizona or Alamaba or American School for the Deaf or Arkansas School of the Deaf?

  7. Miss Kat's Parent,

    That is a WELL-KNOWN FACT about the Clarke School for the Deaf and oral schools have the history of extensive physical and verbal abuses toward deaf students.

    Residential schools of the deaf and other educational programs of the deaf are not immune at all.

    If not for lax standards with the hiring of shady people for faciliting the educational settings of the deaf. We will see
    the lessenings of abuses toward
    deaf students.
