http://www.1011now.com/home/headlines/School-District-Says-Deaf-Student-Not-Required-to-Change-Name-167784235.html

Quote:
"Grand Island Public Schools is not requiring any current student with a hearing impairment to change his or her sign language name." -GIPS Statement released Tuesday
....

"The encouragement and support is amazing," Brian Spanjer, Hunter's father, said. "It's been more than I could have asked for and it's been extremely helpful."

But, that's not the case for Grand Island Public Schools.

They said they've been receiving hundreds of angry calls and emails, even death threats.


I wonder if those death threats were really just other deaf people named hunter calling in to support their fellow bretheren.


Deaf threats?

We had reports that this image was removed by an admin earlier. I could still see it, and it wasn't flagged as Deleted as far as I could tell, so it was probably a glitch, but just to be on the safe side, This image is approved for use throughout the forum and should not be removed by an administrator. Re-upload was authorized and anyone with a problem with that should take it up with myself please.

Thank you

I didn't attend a fancy school or nothin' but I'll surmise that not a lot of deaf folks are out making phone calls. I mean there's video phones and all, but that's just presumptuous.
