Asking questions about deaf children in Westminster…

One MP who has been very supportive of NDCS’s work is Tom Levitt. He’s one of the few MPs in Parliament with a qualification in sign language and has given deaf awareness training in a previous life.

And, prompted by our campaign to close the gap in educational attainment between deaf children and their hearing peers, he’s also tabled a parliamentary question on our behalf which we’ve been told will be getting a reply on the 10th November. The question is:

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families, what progress has been made in narrowing the gap in educational attainment between deaf children and their hearing peers; and what further steps he intends to take to further narrow the gap.

Will be looking forward to seeing what the Department for Children, Schools and Families say…
