If they are learning English, why do they need their books printed in Spanish?
I guess two liberal groups are running afoul of each other. If they can't force Spanish kids to read CA texts, how can they teach them about how wonderful homosexuality is?
Ding, we have a winner.
There's a kid in my daughters' classroom this year that is from Ethiopia. He couldn't speak any English when he started in their classroom, and he understood limited English.
He is now speaking English. It's not great, but I can hold a conversation with him. He probably speaks better than my daughter who has a severe speech problem.
The kid is still way behind where he needs to be for 3rd grade, but at least he is speaking English. He's starting to read and so some math. The school is going to retain him, so he'll repeat 3rd grade. They are also trying to get him extra help, but there are lots of hoops to jump through.
The people voted to get rid of the failed bilingual mess here in CA and yet these folks keep at it trying to turn CA schools into Mexican schools. Add to that the blacks who see education as "white" and reject it, along with standard written English and you have a recipe for an irreparably fractured society.
