Talkback 3: Deaf School Protest

Dear Mr. Bert:

I'm writing this letter about Mississippi School for the Deaf. On June 13, 2006, I filed a compliant with the Board of Education about the teacher not speaking fluent sign language. I began my own investigation on the MSD.

My son stated to me because the teacher could not sign to him fluently, that he was failing all his classes.  This boy was getting good report cards, so I didn't have to question his education. After his tutoring, teachers were found to have inappropriate behavior on the tv  news and he was questioned about having sex with her. And the assault on him from a teacher and teacher calling the kids n****r in front of another teacher. He was not participating in class.

The deaf students go to school as dorm student meaning the school has total control and responsible of their educating, teaching  them how to live and speak in a totally hearing culture. They come home every weekend but if they play sports like my son, come home once every 2 to 3 months.

He has school work completed, not graded, nor test graded. He stated to me, "Mom, MSD don't care. They're not interested. "

I couldn't believe that  the school would not notify me that you were not participating in class. I wrote to Jim Hood, the Board of Education, the superintendent of the Education Dept and state attorney general office general office and no one has answer any complaint.
