The Rush-Henrietta School District made a proposal to phase out ASL class as a foreign language credit that the 8th graders have been earning a credit that is equivalent to high school level. The fight was presented by the deaf community members to confront the board in a town meeting where many spoke out to preserve ASL in middle school. It led to convince the board to unanimously vote to keep ASL classes in middle school. See how this model has set up an example of unity to make the outcome desirable by the deaf community.
