A Failure In ASL Education

I was recently asked to assist a deaf webmaster to develop a letter he/she can use to send to people asking for financial support. The letter below is the example he sent to me. I can see why this person wasn't able to get any sponsorships. The letter below represents the result of the failed sign language based education system we have been feeding, as in funding, for too long. This is the result of the taxpayers $800,000.00 that was spent to teach this person sign language. The person can't succeed because he/she wasn't taught the right language. That's a $800,000.00 waste of taxpayers money you're seeing here. Getting this deaf person to hear and speak would have cost far less than $100,000.00 and would have made a better writer than what you see in the letter below.

I've been seeing a lot of examples like this and feel it's high time we start teaching deaf children the right language. It's high time we stop funding the failed sign language based education programs for the deaf and start funding programs that teach deaf children the right language. Lets do that so we dont have to see more letters like below.
