When did our so-called “Minorities” take over America? I don’t remember Italian-American, German-American, Norwegian-American, Swedish-American, Chinese- American, Indian-American, Pakistani-American, Japanese- American, Russian-American, Armenian-American first generation (off the boat, now off the plane) children being given years and years of “English as a Second Language” learning assistance. Many of these children had to learn a whole new alphabet. On top of that, to learn to read from right to left and from horizontally instead of vertically. Why did these “legal” immigrant children learn English in usually a year, if not less, and it takes our Spanish-speaking Children (same alphabet, same reading the words from right to left) years and years? And still, many read and speak English at a fifth-grade level when they graduate from the 12th grade?
