Ministry ignores deaf children

School system serves deaf students poorly

Life, April 7.

As parents of a deaf child who uses American Sign Language, we know too well the wild-goose chase that the Ministry of Education has led us on.

The education minister has not responded to repeated requests from the deaf and the Ontario Association of the Deaf to prevent our children from falling into limbo.
