Around the world, deaf children face struggles in education due to inappropriate learning environments. Since the CRPD entered into force in 2006, there has been a continuing trend of placing deaf children in mainstream schools, often without access to or direct instruction in sign language, without instruction by deaf teachers, and without access to bilingual education. In several contexts, this trend has been accompanied by closure of deaf schools that has had a significant impact on the achievement of inclusion for deaf children.
