Deaf education has been problematic in many countries and Zimbabwe has not been exempt from these seemingly global challenges. DZT conducted focus group discussions with Deaf adults in Harare in order to gain an understanding of their educational experience. The discussions sought to gather insights on the educational experience of the Deaf. DZT sought views from Deaf adults who had gone up to Form 4.

As part of DZT advocacy efforts to improve the quality of education for the Deaf in Zimbabwe, DZT needed to explore the educational experiences of Deaf adults. The focus group also provided insights and reasons for the educational outcomes of Deaf students in Zimbabwe. The Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education acknowledges that the Deaf have experienced poor educational outcomes and that their reading ability is far below their hearing peers in the same level (DZT Workshop Report 2013).
