Deaf children pupils are being “left behind” in Scottish education
We are the National Deaf Children’s Society, the leading charity for deaf children. We’re here for every deaf child who needs us – no matter what their level or type of deafness or how they communicate.
Deaf children are being “left behind” in #Scottisheducation, the National #Deaf Children’s Society has said. Its analysis suggests deaf #pupils are eight times more likely to leave school with no qualification than their hearing classmates. The charity also found that only 29 percent of deaf school-leavers go to #university. The figure for hearing students is 45 percent.
