    Family: School Made Deaf Child Change Sign Name, Said It Looked Like Gun

    A Nebraska school district asked a deaf preschooler to change his sign language name because they believe the hand motion he used looked like he was shooting a gun.

    The family of 3-year-old Hunter Spanjer said that their deaf son’s sign gesture violates the Grand Island Public Schools weapons policy.

    “He’s deaf, and his name sign, they say, is a violation of their weapons policy,” Brian Spanjer, Hunter’s father, told Nebraska based news channel KOLN. “It’s a symbol. It’s an actual sign, a registered sign, through (Signing Exact English).”

    anti gun extremists

    running the grand island, nebraska, public schools

    so agenda driven, so robotic, they've lost touch with the humanity they long ago started out trying to serve

    bang bang!

    did you hear chris christie tonite: they believe in teachers unions, we believe in teachers

    he pushed thru trenton teacher tenure reform (no lifetime guarantee for those who can't do the job) with bipartisan support

    of course, the truth is christie's bipartisanship is merely the effect of muscle, he bullied it past the public union obstructionists

    his success is only made possible by his having the voters behind him, he certainly didn't convert anyone

    obama---student loans, free contraception and all the abortion your agenda-driven heart could possibly desire

    romney/ryan---jobs, the economy, energy, prices, incomes, debt, and the courage to take on the third rails of fiscal catastrophe

    seeya at the polls, progressives

    don't bring a gun---and be careful with what you do with your fingers

    My response to the school would be a graphic representation of where they can shove it and how deeply.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    PC runs amok again. And again it is a school. We currently have a multiple page thread on the speech from a graduating valdictorian and the idiot response from that school district's administration.

    And then we ask ourselves about the quality of education. Here it is folks read (or should I say SIGN IT) and weep.
