Folks! This is perhaps the most absurd story ever reported here — and that’s saying a lot! A reader named Rachel writes:
A Deaf child named Hunter is not allowed to use his name sign because the sign for “Hunter” (a dictionary word) uses the thumb and first two fingers in a gun shape and suggests a shooting motion. Here’s the story.
These school officials have lost their ability to reason if they believe stripping a child of his name is necessary for safety under a weapons policy. Educators who are unable to use logic and critical thinking have no business educating.
I just sent a letter to the school board expressing my outrage. Everyone else can too at http://www.gips.org/contact_us
