Richard D. Lavoie defines fairness in the classroom as everyone gets what he or she needs (Beyond, 2005). Many children believe that fairness means that everything is equal, however, that is not the case, especially in an educational setting. Lavoie goes on to explain the importance of defining and explaining fairness to your students on the first day of school, so they understand that each individual student will get what they need, even though it may not seem fair to others.
“What can we do to accept one another through our differences?” Being different from one another is a positive thing because it gives us something unique or special, unlike a world that is full of boredom. In the book “The Chrysalids,” by John Wyndham, people who are identified as abnormal or have deviations are symbolized by the image of the devil. Therefore, they are either killed or abandoned at birth because of their abnormality that people disapprove of. The intolerance that people show in the story and the actions David displays against it reveals the definition of being human. Intolerance should not be permitted.
Corker explains that deaf people are “excluded from the dominant areas of social and cultural reproduction by the perpetuation of a phonocentric world-view” (Corker 2002). She explains why this may also be a reason Deaf people feel excluded from the disability movement. This is because the movement is viewed as a reflection of this world-view because of the way it is socially organised around phonocentric language ‘norms’ (Corker 2002). Corker points out that culture is also one aspect that separates Deaf people and disabled people. She clarifies the difference between deafness and Deafness.

Racism can be described as one of the worst traits that lies among humans. No one is born racists; society simply teaches us that change is bad and so is anything that is different. Discrimination is an atrocious thing and is something that can scar someone emotionally and question their self worth. Making someone question their self worth is something nobody should ever do. We are all made equal not one of us is better than the other and that is difficult from some to accept.
In this time to get the pure equality they wanted the intelligent ones would have to wear earphones that would mess up their train of thought. In order to keep their intelligence to the same level as others, Harrison 's father has to wear "a little mental handicap radio in his ear”. Diana Moon Glampers was not only the one who supported the equality she shot down and killed Harrison Bergeron the one who was the symbol of freedom and being oneself. Diana was also the HG, Handicap General, she was the one who got rid of equality and freedom the best way she could. Vonnegut then tells us not to go all the way towards pure equality or everyone will lose their individuality.
And a disabled person’s ambition is like all other human beings, the looks of pity and compassion negatively affect that ambition. People should embrace the disabled person and give them a helping hand, and they should have laws, which defend their rights, which should be respected. However, most societies do not have laws that ensure an equal life for the disabled population. It is a shame that the rights of the disabled people has turned many times to mere slogans. As the statistics shown above say, disabled people are considered an embarrassment to be around and considered unproductive people, and therefore are excluded from their society.
Patricks ' illness was created to gain attention for the mother, making her son deathly ill in the process. Assistant Prosecutor Sheila Whirley told jurors: “She manufactured illnesses. People don’t want to believe that a mother would do this because mothers are supposed to plant the seeds of love that grow for a lifetime.” Kinsella admitted to police that she “accidentally” gave her son the wrong medication “on occasion.” Doctors disputed that because of the amount of medication and types of drugs that were found in Patrick 's system showed she had intentionally poisoned her
There are many myths and misconceptions that currently exist about Deaf individuals, such as that they cannot drive, have kids, or contribute to society. These myths and misconceptions stem from a variety of ideals that have created false limitations about the Deaf. In regards to the Deaf not being able to drive, the case involving the Modesto police in which they believed that they were dealing with a defiant suspect who turned out to be Deaf was an unfortunate situation but has lead to new training for officers to help prevent this situation from occurring again. There are many statistics that support that Deaf drivers are actually safer and better driver than hearing drivers. There is also the misconception that deafness is genetic.

Her father, Nao Kao Lee, was especially enraged on two occasions. One, when the doctors were performing a spinal tap on Lia, he said that was when “Lia was lost”, as the Hmong believed that procedure would cripple her in this life and her future lives . The second occasion was when he misunderstood that he had to sign a paper that stated that Lia would die in two hours, when it fact “released in two hours” was what was written. “In the Hmong moral code, foretelling a death is strongly taboo.”, and so Nao Kao grabbed his daughter and ran. He was caught afterwards, but these scenarios show that the Hmong had a strong sense of values that the doctors weren’t able to understand and both parties were at a disadvantage.
Diversity is a great asset to any organization. Deaf people don’t want to be changed, they would just like to have the same opportunities to participate in society. Callis states, “I believe creating cultural awareness from the top down is the most effective methods of establishing two-way communication between businesses and the deaf community.” I choose this American Sign Language class to fill a cultural understanding requirement for my bachelor’s degree here at IUPUI. I have enjoyed every minute of this class learning about the deaf culture, and especially learning their language, American Sign Language (ASL). I have learned that ASL is a visible language that is linguistically independent of English.
