Hard-Of-Hearing Student Objects To Audio Section Of Test

"Payton, who wrote her own letter to state officials, said it could be "demeaning" for her to have to ask a teacher to keep re-reading a passage. "By asking me to repeat information repetitively and depend on someone to read to me, you are allowing my disability to be flagged in vibrant colors," she wrote."
