Oregon's English-Only Law

We don't take political views very openly on this site, because we prefer to pass on the latest business relevant news. However, we thought people in the education industry would be interested in what the web site Opposing Views is doing with polls and user participation.

While Obama and McCain slug it out on the national stage, voters in individual states are considering legislation that could have widespread repercussions. In the first of a special election series, Opposing Views examines Oregon’s Measure 58, a proposal that would require “English immersion” in Oregon public schools while limiting foreign language instruction. Do English immersion laws help or harm students? Figure out where you stand now; your state may be next.

Look for more of their commentary online at the Education Industry Investment Forum.
