"4. Eliminate all bilingual education in all states.
definitely! this is america! we speak english, NOT spanish or anything like that. learn the language of the country or shut up. schools should only teach in english. "
if I have to hear one more person say, “this is america, speak english damnit!!” i will fucking shoot myself. Europeans almost all learn 2 languages at school, and they’re doing a lot better off than us at the moment. Also, according to certain statistics, english speaking whites will be in the minority sometime in the next few decades (yes, a lot of the hispanics are illegal, but they are still here right?) So in essence you want to stop our children from learning the language that the majority of the population will know by the time they are adults?? Good job my friend, good job. Personally, I think people in this country need to get over how great america is or how great they think it is and realize that you make up a small percentage of the world, except for your military prowess, your influence is shrinking, the steady growth of the european union being the strongest example of another economic power coming to the front. I personally was brought up eith 2 languages in South Africa and I don’t regret it at all. I am quite happy actually as my language abilities are not the strongest and having 2 base languages i feel has made me more intelligent than if i had just had 1. anyways, bilingualism is not such a bad thing, especially when you start it to kids under 10 b/c they have the greatest capacity for learning a 2nd language, I am almost certain half the people on this board wished their parents had taught them a second language when they were children.
