Topic: Public school
The way to sign "public school" is to combine the signs
"SCHOOL." Which is
to say, that from a Deaf perspective, a public school is a place where
hearing people go. The sign for "Deaf
School" is "institution."
"Institution" is an initialized form of the sign
"school." In the old days residential schools for the deaf
were commonly referred to as institutions. That is where deaf children
were sent. Many of the old Deaf Schools have been closed down or
converted to administrative offices. Laws have been passed mandating that
children be placed in the "Least Restrictive Environment."
This is a sticky issue because what a hearing person (legislators,
administrators, educators, etc.) considers to be a least restrictive environment
and what deaf person believes are often radically different.
