Several authors in the 1990s wrote a series of opinion pieces that oppose placing all Deaf students in an “inclusive education” environment. Here, “inclusive education” means placing students with disabilities in mainstream schools with non-disabled students. Some of the authors who have negative opinion on inclusive education are themselves Deaf or else work with Deaf students. Some of the authors say that Deaf students have different needs and should be able to choose among different options. This includes the opportunity to choose between mainstream school and a school for Deaf students. The authors share their experiences with Deaf students in inclusive education in the United States in the 1990s and earlier.
