Why this petition matters

Started by Tamar Chilton

In a world where we are to treat everyone equal and not discriminate against those with disabilities, learning difficulties and special needs why are we not teaching children sign language at school. 
I think it should be made part of the national curriculum instead of a foreign language. Or at the very least it should be offered as a option for children to choose from. 
I know as a child if I saw a special needs person I would stare. And I know I won’t be the only child that did. I didn’t do it out of badness. It was because I was curious. Because I didn’t understand why they weren’t the same as me. By teaching this in schools it would help children understand that. It would bring communities closer. And it would prevent deaf, particularly deaf, sen children ect to not feel icolated
