Open Quote It is difficult to provide an education for the hearing impaired and then base results on standardized test scores that do not take into account the disability of the child. If a child cannot hear, he or she misses a lot of contextual information on a STAAR or EOC exam. It is interesting because although deafness is NOT considered a cognitive impairment, many of the test questions are geared toward a hearing world.
Our neighbor is on the football team at TSD and he has done quite well in school. He feels humiliated by "rankings" that do not address the deaf community: namely that the students and staff are uncaring.
I am not a professional educator, but I can only imagine the frustration these kids must feel when having to "compete" on the standardized tests the district and state set up.
Imagine a life where you have normal or above normal intelligence. Then imagine the football plays that you have memorized over and over, and intricate hand signals that take time. Then, add that your team has a large bass drum to alert you when the whistle has been blown or (a different pattern on the drum) a flag has been thrown.
How can this football team have won nine of twelve games last season against other players who can hear?
Personally, I do not think that it is fair for anyone to compare children BASED ON TEST SCORES ALONE, especially when the deck is stacked against them. My children are hearing, therefore they go to "higher" rated schools. I have helped one of my three daughter a lot with testing prep, because she doesn't test well.
Here is a sample from the AISD website for a middle school test question:

"Which figure of speech is used in this text?
'You've reached Jake Brennan's voice mail. Please leave a detailed message at the beep, and I will return your call at my earliest convenience.'"

Nice. If you are deaf, you don't have the same context. This is for seventh grade. And so on it goes. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
