Caitrin BS: Minority languages (59* d) RE: BS: Minority languages 15 Jun 01


Spanish language teaching has been a big deal here in Eastern North Carolina--we get a large number of migrant workers here, and therefore end up with a lot of Spanish speakers in the public schools. We have some people here who are -determined- that there will be -no- teaching in Spanish for those kids, forcing them to simply "sink or swim." While this method of language learning does work eventually, I'm sure it's -very- stressful on those kids. Just because "no one helped my great grandma learn English", it doesn't mean that way was -good-. I get extremely annoyed with the people here who insist on saying "They'll just have to learn English, we're not helping." especially since their major argument seems to be "That's the way it's always been done."
