Discussion:

Topic:  Public school
The way to sign  "public school" is to combine the signs "HEARING-(speak)" and "SCHOOL."  Which is to say, that from a Deaf perspective, a public school is a place where hearing people go.  The sign for "Deaf School" is "institution."


See: Residential School for the Deaf


"Institution" is an initialized form of the sign "school."  In the old days residential schools for the Deaf were commonly referred to as institutions.  That is where deaf children were sent.  Quite a few of the old Deaf Schools have been closed down or converted to administrative offices. Laws have been passed mandating that children be placed in the (so called) "Least Restrictive Environment."   

This is a sticky issue because what a Hearing person (legislators, administrators, educators, etc.) considers to be a least restrictive environment and what a Deaf person believes to be a least restrictive environment -- are often radically different.
