Save schools, deaf community says

The province’s deaf community and their supporters are putting pressure on Ontario’s government this week, calling on them to keep schools for the deaf and special needs students open.

Executive director of the Ontario Association of the Deaf, as well as parents of kids who attend so-called demonstration schools — they’re funded outside the traditional school board model — will be with London Fanshawe MPP Teresa Armstrong Thursday, in whose riding Robarts and Amethyst schools are located.

The group will make a presentation on the future of five such schools, including the two in London.
