    ASL in Public Education

    Hey everyone, I am writing this for some research for a paper I'm writing and would appreciate if you guys would answer some questions. -What are your thoughts on implementing American Sign Language in public school? -Do you have any concerns? -What would be some benefits? -If this happens, should more middle and/or high schools offer more courses relating to American Sign Language and the Deaf culture? -What do you think would/could happen to schools for the deaf if this happens? Would they keep running or, after a while, would deaf students be spread out around hearing schools? **For Deaf and/or Hard-of-Hearing people** -Do you think it would help you now even though you have hearing aids? -How well do your hearing aids work? -Are/were there any obstacles you came across with your hearing aids? If there is anything else you think would help, please feel free to add that in your response.

    Hi, I'm Jill.

    Like the title says, I'm Jill. I'm 17 years old and have been learning American Sign Language on and off since I was 12. I never really got to learn in a class because in my hometown there were no Sign Language classes outside of the community college. Now I'm taking an online class, but I don't get to practice my signs or conversations at much because it's online and I don't have any classmates. If anyone wants to video chat and practice with me, that'd be fun. I especially need help with the grammar part of ASL. Also, I'm on East Coast time and usually am free around 5:00 pm if that's important.
