Summary This film concerns the history of the false education of deaf people. Focus is upon oralism, the concept that the only proper route for educating deaf students is oral instruction. A central figure in the oralist controversy is Jacob Rodrigue Pereire. He claimed to have a secret method for teaching deaf children to speak. This episode is "a record of the efforts of hearing people to supplant the language of the deaf with their language, to replace signs with speech."
