Ontario College of Teachers Standard Setting Exercise Report now! sign now

Registrar and Chief Executive Officer
Ontario College of Teachers

Toronto, Ontario M4W 3M5


Dear Mr. McGowan:



I, as a Deaf individual or a hearing colleague of the Deaf community wish to express our concern in the process regarding the ASL Proficiency Policy pre-requisites report. There has been no report on this issue since the Ontario College of Teachers standard-setting exercise that took place on February 8, 2008. I want to see a follow up on the report and it to be shared with us. Why has there been no report given or published? Will the Ontario College of Teachers be following this up with Gail Stewart?

There is also the issue as to whether the above mentioned standard-setting exercise in creating the report was a fair and a due process. In this exercise, there was not a fair representation of the Deaf community in which these people who were not Deaf, not a part of the Deaf community or support American Sign Language as one of the languages of instruction for the Deaf students. Clearly, the process that occurred on February 8, 2008 was not a due process. The Ontario College of Teachers has respected the French and the English as a Second Language teaching community and only listened to them while our meeting was fraught with those who oppose the very goals that OAD and the Deaf community have been working towards. Were you aware that this meeting on February 8, 2008 was not a due process?

We are looking forward to your answers on these above questions and to quiet the concerns of the Deaf community that includes Deaf children, their parents, their teachers, the administration and the community workers.
