Several times during the past few years the Nebraska School for the Deaf has been critically attacked for its failure to provide adequate educational opportunities for the deaf children of Nebraska. An impartial study of the school followed, and this study showed that the Nebraska School for the Deaf was, in comparison with similar schools, carrying out its function quite well. However, the charge of educational retardation at the Nebraska School for the Deaf was one that could not be denied. Educators of the deaf everywhere are concerned about the fact that the deaf child is not obtaining an education equal to that of his hearing brothers and sisters.
