Make sign language a mandatory class for the majority to communicate equally

Petition Details

To make sign language a mandatory class just like french and other languages are. This means people with disabilities like deafness don't feel isolated from a normal society.

Additional Information

I feel as if people that communicate with sign language feel isolated and difficult to communicate with the majority. We make other languages mandatory from year 7 to year 9, until we pick GCSE's, so I feel it should be mandatory.
