make sign language part of the curricullum

Deaf children have to go to mainstream schools and have a one on one support worker which will make them stand out even more. How difficult must it be for them to communicate with the other children, and form friendships.Iif this is taught in schools it would be much easier for the deaf children, hearing children and teaching staff to communicate. A few secondry schools in England do teach BSL (british sign language), why cant it be taught in all schools. i aim to give children the oppertunity to learn sign language in mainstream schools weather they are deaf or not and regardless if there are deaf children in the school. id like to see BSL used in primary schools as a lesson of its own and hopefully as a second language choise in senior school were most schools offer a choise of languages at GCSE level why not offer children the choise of BSL level 1 this in my opinian will help the deaf community as hearing people will have a better understanding of the deaf language, it could also be useful to hearing people in different aspects of life. If you agree with this please join and spread the word.


i have approched a few agencies such as the ndcs to ask them if they can help to get recognition for this petition, Any help to get more recognition for this will be most appreciated.
