That sounds very discriminated against those who aren't deaf enough, It's like telling a black person, that he cannot be a President of a 1/3 black & 1/2 white school. We don't live in the old time age anymore DHB!, This is the year of 2006 where things changes now, more hearing people are accepting deafies and even most schools are providing sign language courses for free to teach hearies. What's the problem? I'm just so tired of seeing some deafies living in the past, where they were being treat like a nothing, forget the past, live in the present and it's future. Deafies should know a lot better not to be so discriminated against others because they don't like to be discriminated either by hearies. Nobody likes to be treated less favorably than others. Look what you guys are doing to us, we are deaf just like you, there's no differences, who cares who shares the same values, history, language, etc. it's not important or even requirement. Why it is always about "me, me , me". Those students are there for one reason only is getting a education and learn, and be more accepting who's around them even who's going to be the future President of Gallaudet.
Your reason relating for it's President of Gallaudet is full of crap, because Gallaudet University college itself accepts deaf, hard of hearing, and even cochlear implant enrollment. That college itself is a barrier-free communication environment, not mute communication environment with ASL only.
This is from somebody from the other side of the tracks (who could never be mistaken as being deaf enough!!!!!)
