LOPES, Maura Corcini  e  VEIGA-NETO, Alfredo. Above all, let tha school teach us. In defense of the school for the deaf. ETD [online]. 2017, vol.19, n.4, pp.691-704. ISSN 1676-2592.

Struggle has been a condition of the deaf existence. In May 2011, deaf people from all over Brazil took the streets in defense of the deaf school. It was an unprecedented movement in the Brazilian deaf history. Mobilized, deaf intellectuals wrote a letter to the Minister of Education in which the deaf, in tune with their time, stated the right to education that could meet their linguistic and cultural specificities. The mobilization in defense of the school occupied the streets when the National Institute of Deaf Education (INES) was about to be closed. In the letter, the deaf agreed that impaired children and youths should attend school, but disagreed that the inclusive school was the only and the best setting for students to learn. Considering discourses for inclusion, the deaf claimed that they wanted to mingle with other Brazilian citizens; however, above all, they wanted that the school could teach. Grounded on Foucauldian Studies articulated with Deaf Studies in Education, this paper analyzes documents and deaf narratives in defense of the deaf school. Deafness is understood as an experience of subjectivation that is constituted, among other intersections, by the school and the exercises of deaf freedom and living in the school.
