I’m an educator and support bilingual education. I believe that a school should teach students to speak the LANGUAGES that are necessary to survive personally and professionally. Considering that the census predicts that in 2050, 30% of the population will be Spanish-speaking, I am not sure how Newt can say that English stands alone as the “language of prosperity.” Even today, a person who is bilingual has the potential to make more money than someone who has mastered the English language alone. I digress. P.S. I’m not bashing Republicans, I’m challenging a dumb comment.
