Parents of students and members of the deaf community are not happy with the new direction being taken by the board of Indiana School for the Deaf. Governor Mitch Daniels recently appointed four new board members who are not deaf or hard-of-hearing. There is only one member who is deaf and three of the four new board members support oralism. A Daniels spokesperson told the parents who object, "We think there's an opportunity for new board members to bring new ideas for consideration. We hope everyone will get to know them and give them a chance."
