School Director Resigns

The director of the North Carolina School for the Deaf has unexpectedly resigned. Controversy has swirled around the school after it went into lockdown to prevent a protest on campus. Linda Lindsey spoke to students last Sunday in an effort to discourage them from participating in the gathering planned for the next day. Only a few of them turned out for the protest and those that did were suspended, along with several employees. One of the students complaints is that Lindsey is not fluent in American Sign Language. She will now moving into another state position with Education Services at the state capital. School principal Janet McDaniel will take over as interim director.
