School May Close

The Utah schools for the deaf and blind may be shut down in order to save $20 million dollars in the state school board budget. This morning the school's superintendent made a plea for keeping the facility operating rather than forcing the students into regular classes. However, only one-fifth of the school's students are learning ASL. Most are in a learning program that teaches spoken language (some have cochlear implants).
