Children who are deaf are getting a fighting chance at success as basic human rights

Deaf children have a right to a quality education, like all other children, in a language and environment that maximizes their potential.

Worldwide, deaf children and young people are often denied an education, including in sign language. There is a lack of teachers well-trained in sign language, and in many cases parents do not know that their children have a right to go to school and that they can learn if only given the opportunity.
