Give me a break!! Who's tax dollars are paying for this nonsense. If you can't speak English why are we paying for this.

Why does a bone head from Ontario waste space on the Placerville forum with her mindless rantings?Can't you post this in your own hometown's forum?

Dearest Donna,
What exactly are you talking about? The conference was held in english with translators where needed.
You seem bitter and judgemental, did you even attend? Or are you making this negative statement just by the short newspaper article?

It's great that the parents are getting involved but I don't know why these people that can not speak english can't take classes themselves.

To help the schools they need to be English only classes.One of the reasons the school system is in disarray is the bi-lingual classes.Non-English speaking students should be in classes taught in that language until they have an understanding of English.When subjects are presented in the same classroom in two languages,it obviouslly cuts the instruction time in half for both groups.

The Ontario-Montclair School district teaches all classes in English except for special Magnet schools that specialize in language such as the Central Language Academy which submerges its students in English and Spanish. To have a child attend this magnet school, a parent must petition for attendence there. Non-English speaking children in regular elementary schools are put in English speaking regular classrooms where they pick up English in a surprisingly short time.
