Petition Add sign language on to the national schools curriculum.

I would want the government to give school teachers the necessary training to be able to communicate with children or adults and be able to teach students, in mainstream schools.

More details

The reason why I want the government to add sign language on the schools curriculum is because young children and adults who are deaf or struggle to talk and feel it’s easier to use sign language feel isolated and feel like they can’t communicate with others, I think teaching young children and adults to learn sign language will help people to feel less isolated and not different from anyone else, I also feel like it would benefit others who aren’t deaf or struggle to talk.
