NZ Deaf Education

Deaf education in New Zealand is provided by dedicated schools and tertiary institutions. Compulsory education followed European standards in insisting on oral education for a century from 1880, and in recent times has begun to embrace NZSL and bilingualism in a meaningful way. Tertiary providers deliver a high calibre of NZSL research, Deaf Studies, as well as qualifications in NZSL tutoring and interpreting.
