Too bad your ignorant ass did not attend anything other than the government indoctrination camps known as public schools.

Competition - any competition to the public school system - is a very good thing.

public schools in america do'nt speak spanish or french as a main language. They speak english and if you want to speak spanish you take a spanish class. Charter schools just show the liberals in america that they have power. Stick to public schools stick to teaching english first and american history.
