In recent years there has been an outpouring of political activity urging educational reforms. It is argued that additional monies will effect change in teenage pregnancy, reduce chronic discipline problems in schools, and lower dropout rates. Johnson, Liddel and Erting stated two reasons for academic failure in deaf education. The first is a language-related issue. The second reason involved the values and attitudes that have developed among those who educate deaf children. In order for deaf children to succeed, the promotion and integration of new teachings kills should be implemented in classrooms to enhance each child's self esteem and empower the student with skills and the desire to succeed in becoming responsible and independent. For this to occur, educators need to redefine their roles in the classroom. Also, an attempt must be made to persuade administrators to redefine institutional goals.
