Aaron R. published a post on his blog on February 18, 2013 with the headline: “What Crisis?: The reality for Illinois School for the Deaf,” in response to my February 6, 2013 open letter titled: “25 Years After DPN, Deaf STILL CAN’T?” (http://saveourdeafschools.org). I want to thank him for his post, because it reinforced and validated the facts in my first open letter and brought more attention to the problems existing at Illinois School for the Deaf.
A special message from Jerry Covell:
Next month, I will be participating in a 25th anniversary of the Deaf President Now protest at Gallaudet University where I was one of the student leaders that protested against the Board of Trustee to prove the world that a qualified deaf person can become a president of Gallaudet University and that “deaf people can do anything but hear”. Yet, a few weeks ago a deplorable incident occurred at a school for the deaf…..now we are basically being told “deaf people cannot do anything”. Such oppression and bigotry actually happened at the Illinois School for the Deaf (ISD) by a hearing principal and certain hearing co-workers on January 17, 2013. It is just unbelievable that this oppression is still happening in this day and age.
Please spread the words and share it.
California School for the Deaf, Fremont was selected so please vote. The winning school will receive a $25,000 grant and a trip to New York City to attend the annual Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year award event. Voting ends at 11:59 PM on 11/15/12.
