Yesterday, Paul Knight broke an interesting story on the Houston Press‘ Hair Balls blog about a Spring Branch mom who has had difficulty enrolling her kids in school because… they speak English (not Spanish). Really!
Today, Knight follows up on the story with news that the principal said he would allow one of the kids to attend a Spanish-only Pre-K class (although we’re not sure exactly what this will accomplish, aside from cheap day care in a language the kid doesn’t understand) — but now the district superintendent is involved, and trying to resolve the problem.
These would be public schools.
Maybe the people who want to make English the country’s official language have a point.
