It's plain that the conservative argument that bilingual education is failing kids is backed up by real world experience. This is unpalatable to the Left, of course. Weintraub cites the case of one Democrat removed from the state board of education by the Democrats in the Senate for having the temerity to advocate that all kids be taught in English 2.5 hours a day.
Immigrant kids did just fine in school before the bilingual education fad took hold. California's results show that they'll do fine again if it's done away with. Why, then, are we still wasting time, money, and worst of all, kids' potential, in a misguided attempt to coddle them?
