. . . and “Congress Should Reject It.” That’s the title of an excellent new Heritage Foundation issue brief by Mike Gonzalez. It’s prompted by a new Obama administration policy statement, released last week, pressuring “states to support and encourage children to retain separate languages and cultural attachments” (quoting Mr. Gonzalez).
The most important things that public schools can do are to teach children to use English well and encourage a common and patriotic commitment to our country and its values. So naturally the Obama administration is trying to undermine both. Watch for the administration to pull out all the stops to advance a left-wing agenda during its last half-year.
