Integration of students with hearing impaired students come as an education policy in Ethiopia so that long tends of exclusion of deaf students from school get solved. Important logic behind integration was not only academic benefit but also development of social relation of students with hearing impaired and social isolation get blocked. However, scholars have no common argument regarding joining both hearing and hearing impaired students together in one class. Accordingly, based on this review of the recent literatures, social benefit is weighing more than academic benefit for hearing impaired students in integrated class. Absence of resources centers in almost all public schools, lack off sign language skill among all classroom teachers, awareness gap among staff and teachers and less collaboration and commitment among stakeholders to implement integration policy considered as a key challenges for hearing impaired students not to benefit from the integration policy.
