Welcome To The Bitchery

Can we become more Xenophobic?

Kentucky passed a law allowing computer classes to replace foreign language classes. Really? Isn't this essentially reinforcing that the only true language is English and if one goes abroad its acceptable to be ignorant in the country you visit. Also foreign languages also help understand English. We adopted a lot of French words, German is closely related to English. Also it teaches one respect for other nation. Know their language you understand more the folks speaking it.

Computer classes are wonderful to take but there is no reason to drop foreign language requirement. So ragey about this.

No wonder we have fools complaining that America The Beautiful wasn't sung in English we have a future generation who will believe English should be the only language.
