Interview About MSU Deaf Education Program

An interview with Celeste Johnson on the closure of Deaf Education and ASL classes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r8Ei5JFNsF4

Celeste Johnson was interviewed by two TV stations, but they never made it to the news. However, one person who attended the Board of Trustees meeting in support of opposing the closure of Deaf Education and ASL classes taped the entire interview. Dale, who taped the interview, also taped the speeches during the public comments; however, it is difficult to see the interpreter at a distance and as soon as the video is available with captions, it will be posted so that everyone can view the speeches given by Celeste Johnson and Sheryl Emery, DODHH director.

Thank you, Dale, for taping the interview!

Note: Jeannette Johnson has posted a blog about her mother being interviewed: http://deafpundit.wordpress.com/2010/04/19/interview-about-msu-deaf-education-program/

    PLEASE READ! I’M HAVING A SIMILAR PROBLEM WITH WMU! WHO IS THE HEAD OF THIS BLOG AND CAN YOU HELP?

    My name is Rachelle Damico I’m a student at Western Michigan. Western will NOT accept ASL for Foreign Language credits, which is the same as not accepting it as a Foreign Language. It’s under the Speech Pathology and Audiology department, where it classifies the deaf as people who need to be fixed, it’s says its works for a “treatment for deafness”: http://www.wmich.edu/hhs/sppa/ I have already started a petition and contacted MADHH, contacting NAD tomorrow. If someone could help me on here or we could start something, it would be very appreciative.

    Thanks so much,
    Rachelle
