ASL Immersion

Click to get cool Animations for your MySpace profile I notice that when hearing children goes to a public school, they learn English as their primary language but in the middle school (4th grade) they get to choose a second language to learn, Spanish, French, etc. and become fluent. This causes me to start thinking about our Deaf educational system and maybe its about time to overall it. We Deaf are equal to our hearing counterparts so I propose that ASL, the Deaf primary language be taught first, then introduce English in the fourth grade. It's a new concept worth exploring, my hypothesis is that ASL immersion is the way to go!
