Deaf Kid Asked To Change Name,Sign Resembles Weapon

A deaf 3-year-old from Nebraska is being asked by the school district to change his name, page his family alleges, site because the way he refers to himself in sign language resembles “weapons.”

Apparently the Grand Island school district has a policy that prevents students from bringing “any instrument…that looks like a weapon” to school, and now hands can be considered “instruments.”

“Anybody that I have talked to thinks this is absolutely ridiculous. This is not threatening in any way,” Hunter Spanjer’s grandmother Janet Logue said.

Brian Spanjer, the boy’s father, added: “It’s a symbol. It’s an actual sign, a registered sign, through S.E.E. [Signing Exact English]”

Hunter signs his name by crossing his middle and index fingers– leaving his thumbs up– and then wagging his hands.-[source]

    They are telling a deaf 3 year old to change his name? Did I read that correctly?

    People there have warped minds. These are people that are actually teaching school? I though people that taught should have working brains.
