Topic:  Public school
The way to sign  "public school" is to combine the signs "HEARING-(speak)" and "SCHOOL." From a Deaf perspective, a public school is a place where Hearing people go. Hearing people are those who talk with their mouths (instead of their hands).

The sign for "Deaf School" is descended from or based on the sign for "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.  Quite a few of the old Deaf Schools have been closed down or converted to administrative offices due to funding issues and laws that have been passed mandating that children be educated in the (so called) "Least Restrictive Environment."   

Deciding what is a "Least Restrictive Environment" is a challenging issue because what Hearing people (legislators, administrators, educators, etc.) consider to be a least restrictive environment and what Deaf people believe to be a least restrictive environment -- are often radically different.
