So, the FSSA is worried about a fair process, are they?

The Deaf Community is wise. The Deaf Community is strong ... but the Deaf Community is not given the whole TRUTH:

Well, the New Mexico Deaf Community has more info and just shared some with us. Did you know that there is a story that Ron Stern was guaranteed the position of president by certain unethical persons who shall be dealt with? Can you believe that the FSSA has been screaming about an unfair process when they knew it was rigged in favor of Ron Stern? Thank goodness that there was an ethical and fairly overseen process by the President Search Committee.

Ron Stern is Bilingual/Bicultural (ASL/ENGLISH) because Deaf or FSSA want him to become president in Gallaudet University. ASL only is ALIVE and the deaf community
maintains a tradition when I suspect that Deaf or FSSA have tried to get rid of total communication including SEE, PSE, and Oralist

It seems clearly point that Ron Stern is in opposition to cochlear implant that put deaf children.

Prism Online
April 1995
Speaking of signing
‘The surgical procedure of a cochlear implant is another example of an "informed decision" parents of the deaf have to make, according to Stern.
"It can be an invasive surgery with tragic cases," Stern says. And sometimes, Stern says, the procedure does not deliver the promised results, which is a clear sign that a child's deafness is not being accepted. Stern says in some cases he has "very serious doubts" about the procedure. “

My nephew was born Deaf and he had an implant when he was still a baby. It was his parents decision to do what they think is best for the future of their child. Now he is 4 and in a mainstream pre-school and talking like the wind.

Do I think this is wrong? Do I think that they should have just let him be Deaf? It is not MY decision since he is not my child. They are teaching him signing too but he will be able to communicate in both worlds and that is for his benefit. he will not have all the struggles. If I am missing a leg, I can get a prostetic one. What is the difference? It is something to help the person in his life.

Would you believe that the NM School for the Deaf has a cochlear implant center? Yep. Ron Stern is a visionary. He knows that CIs don't work for every deaf child, and sooner or later many of them will come to schools for the deaf.

What you said about Ron Stern makes a great deal of sense. No way of knowing if it's true or just another conspiracy theory... but it surely explains how the hell someone without a PhD would apply for the job, and actually get so far as to be one of the 3 finalists, beating out more qualified, experienced candidates. No wonder FSSA can't say what they really want.
