Drawing on interviews with educators, parents, students, community leaders, and others with a stake in deaf education, Linda Komesaroff presents a deep account of the political challenges facing this entrenched special education group and presents specific strategies for how these challenges might be addressed. Among the initiatives Komesaroff explores as part of her ethnographic study is the shift to a bilingual education model to redress the lack of access to native sign language in the classroom. In Disabling Pedagogy, she analyzes the successes of this model, as well as the complaints field in recent discrimination suits throughout Australia, to offer a way to think about how we might better conceptualize deaf education in general
