Sign Language and Braille taught in Primary and Secondary schools

Sign Language and Braille taught in Primary and Secondary schools

Make Sign Language and Braille studies a subject in schools nation wide. It should be a compulsory, non-exam based subject, such as Physical Education and CSPE.

Why is this important?

It is important that we teach all children equally, as the education system as it stands is particularly ableist. As Sign Language and Braille are both universally used, this would aid the global communication of all children and teenagers throughout the course of their lives. It is just as important as English within our education system.
