Schools in Utica, New York are considering using sign language in classrooms to help communicate with the many refugee students from families that have just moved into the area, according to the Utica Observer. ASL teacher Brooke Erickson, who works at the New York State School for the Deaf which is just down the road from Utica in Rome, talks about the value of sign in the classroom in this video.
