This is terrible. I hear about it all the time from my friends...that had to pull their kids out of public school. In some schools in Houston, most the classes up to 4th grade are taught in Spanish. One of my friend's daughters got picked on because she did not know Spanish and all the other kids in the class did. She knew English and could actually read a book in English, but that was looked down upon...so they removed her from the school and sent her to private school.
not forcing the schools to keep the curriculum to be English is not only unfair for American kids but to these Spanish kids too. what will they get out of it? more opportunities at taco stands and maid services?

Excerpts:

Mr. de Alba said the Mexican government would like to make Dallas a pilot city for a 17-point education plan that includes expanding a teacher exchange program.

and

The foreign minister praised Mr. Leppert's call for "comprehensive immigration reform" and policies in Dallas "aimed at improving the quality of life of all Mexicans living in that city."
IMHO, send the students back to Mr deAlba for education and keep them in Mexico

Their determination to cram themselves down out throats by any means necessary is not only arrogant and delusional but enough to inspire a combined American uprising reminiscent of both Viet Nam and the Civil Rights movements.
