The author reviews what the research literature says about teacher attitudes toward deaf students. She conducted a survey among teachers in mainstream schools in Mississippi. Mississippi is a state in the south-eastern part of the United States. The survey asked about teacher attitudes toward deaf and hard of hearing students.

However, most teachers also felt unprepared to teach them.
