Deaf association in Kerala demands to include sign language in school syllabus
October 5, 2017
Malabar Association of Deaf from Kerala has demanded increase in the percentage of reservation in government jobs for persons with disabilities and inclusion of sign language in the school syllabus.
The officials of the association claimed that when the Persons with Disabilities Act was replaced with the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act, more number of disabilities were included.
However, all the different forms of disabilities were given only 3% reservation in jobs, which in fact must be increased to 5%.
They suggested the government to take steps to give jobs to disabled people and organise job fairs to help them get employment in the private sector.
