Leadership is changing at the Illinois School for the Deaf. Superintendent Janice Smith-Warshaw will take a position teaching at Fresno State University this fall after just two years at the helm of the school. Smith-Warshaw was the first deaf woman to serve as superintendent. A petition popped up on change.org against her earlier this year, suggesting she was the cause of adding cued speech into the school’s curriculum--something she denies. You can see the petition here and read the full story in the Jacksonville Journal Courier.
