Get sign language taught in all high schools
Sign language should be taught in high schools. I'm the daughter of a deaf mother, I can see how hard it is for her 24/7, when people have no idea how to communicate with her. Main reasons is because young people aren't being given a chance to learn to sign, i understand learning foreign languages but what about sign language? The deaf community is a fair size, and they should be able to communicate more with the hearing community! I see on regular basis deaf people struggling to tell people in shops what they want or looking for, why should we let our people struggle daily, to communicate because people aren't being educated properly?! it should be taught in schools at a basic level if not level one or two. If we start teaching them in schools it will help people to be more understanding of the deaf community, and we will be able to make a difference to a lot of people's lives ! So please I beg sign this if you agree that I should be brought to schools !
