Both schools should teach in English ONLY. No other languages. Small children learn a new language easily.
I grew up in a country where English was not spoken. I could have gone to school in either the native language or English.

One of my good friends came to the USA speaking only German. She was not offered a chance to to go school where both German and English were taught. She did just fine.

To teach in 2 languages makes an extra stress on teachers and the PTA of the school to try to get all papers translated. English should be and must be the only language taught in USA schools.

What do you expect when the schools cater to illegal aliens.

I could swear that we live in America where the language spoken is English. We as a whole should have the choice to learn a new language or not. It shouldn't be forced.

Ms. Swanson,

I too grew up in Germany, however we learned four languages. I can safely say that none of us gained fluency in any one language, including German. I think you are correct in saying English only should be taught.

Leave it to the ConspiracyTards to invent their own twist of the story. Nobody is being banned, it's about classes being merged or separated into two different classes. Next time gomer get your facts straight ya moron. White people are so dumb, no wonder they lost their country ha ha ha ha.
