So, even from here I can tell,
That this wasn't handled too well.
If you can't afford
To bring signers on board,
Then get Garrett Morris to yell.

ok
first, MAXX, you have too much free time
second, the fail is strong in this school

What a great lesson. The deaf need to understand that they are fully dependent on the hearing. I think this little example will be a helpful life lesson.

Why on earth would anyone tell that fatty to stop running?! Fatty and her mother both look like a bit more running might do them some good.

Apparently can't hear someone tell her to stop eating either.

Reminds me of a story I read years ago about a hearing woman who was president of Gadault (SP?) University, a school specifically for deaf and hard-of-hearing people. One of the reasons the students were eager to get rid of her had to do with this woman using a microphone for a student assembly.

Not a signer, not even some sort of video hook-up...a microphone at an assembly for deaf students.

Is this the right article? I couldn't find any semblance of anything female in those pictures.

From the pic, I'd have guessed she wouldn't have had ANY trouble stopping

Can't tell from the picture if she's deaf, either.

My son is partially deaf, so I'm getting a kick outta these replies.

Inertia would like to have a word with you.

It's Gallaudet. And I hope that woman was fired for gross incompetence.

Somewhere where the weird ones pop their kids eardrums so they can be deaf from birth and have a higher status in that society.

Congratulations subby. You have managed to have a Daily Mail article approved without needing to crowbar 'Nanny State' somewhere into the headline irrespective of relevance to the article. For Fark, this is quite a rarity.

It IS a culture. So there. For those who believe that language and communication have a great deal to do with defining culture, ASL is a significantly different language than English. I only wish I could understand and think it, because I keep feeling left out of my deaf friends jokes and stories!

washburnmb4: That reminds me of one of the stupidest things I have ever heard:
"Well, it's great they have those noise things to let blind people know when to cross the street"
"I wonder how deaf people know?"

Crowbar? Those 'nanny state' accusations slip in a lot more easier than you think.

Seriously? You're both trying to say that because a very large group of people has a very small amount of crazies, that the entire culture should be waved off as ludicrous?

Are you both trying to get this thread Godwinned?

Laura's mother Karen Park, 35, and dad Gary Trudgill, 50, of Norwich, fought the case with the backing of the National Deaf Children's Society (NCDS).

I find it odd that the National Deaf Children's Society picked "NCDS" as an acronym for their name. Maybe they should get some help from the NDAS (National Adult's Dyslexia Society).

As someone with a very severe hearing loss like the girl in the article, this young lady needs to learn to make her eyes do double duty.

You can't rely on the hearing world to do everything for you. It's called being aware of your surroundings.
