Children are resourceful, they can learn English if they need to. I think learning a foreign language is great and should be started young but kids should be taught in english and all students should have to learn it. (how many of you didn't see that coming! ha ha)
Ever hear of homeschool?
Yes, learning a foreign language is good, but the spanish teacher cant teach english, math, social studies and science to the kids who come in and cant speak english. So they have to hire a bilingual teacher to not only try to teach these kids english, which they should have already known before they were old enough to go to public school. Schools already dont have a very big budget, but now they have to hire these bilingual teachers, and not just ones for english, whatever country that kid comes from, be it Iraq, Iran, India, China, Japan, Mexico, Brazil, ect. And these teachers require money because they dont work for free. So where does that school get the money? No, the government doesnt just approve them more money for their budget. They have to pull programs like soccer, or jazz band, or theatre so they can pay for these teachers. Then the parents get hired on by some douchebag that wants to save a few bucks, so there goes at least 1 job (assuming only 1 parent works, which isnt always the case) that an American could and should have....Then multiply that times a million or more and all of a sudden, we have a fucking problem. Is that hard to understand?
