I also have a son who (35)is deaf and signs but still has trouble when no one that can translate is around to the hearing alone

I too agree it should be taught in schools, from as early as nursery age simply because we are a world with an ever growing population of deaf people and why should they be alienated just because people are to ignorant to learn, surely it is some sort of discrimination as much as a race, age, or even gender would be. Everyone is always fighting for these causes that aren't worth a thing this a seriously big cause to fight for!!

I feel like sign language is important because it is a universal language, why only pick the majority (Spanish) to teach in schools when they could go much further than that? I believe it's also important for the deaf and hard of hearing community to not feel ostracized because of their language.

I am in the 6th grade and I have a deaf friend. He struggles a lot with communication. This is a great idea.

This very idea has been in my head for a few months. I hope to find an affordable BSL class soon and wish I had been taught it it schools. I will be teaching my children as I learn. It's so important to include people with disabilities in every way we can and comunication is a basic starting point! Well done Jade!
