paranoid, paranoid, everybody's trying to get me

(to speak a language other than english)

West Virginia is getting paranoid. Even shadier, they had to sneak this English-only legislation into a bill about the number of members that cities can appoint to boards of parks and recreation. NICE.

Unsurprisingly, this legislation was backed by the organization U.S. English, a group that should be familiar to any well-informed advocate of bilingual education. If anyone would like more info about these English-only groups and their rationales, lemme know and I'll post more info and quotes... I've got tons of stuff stashed away from college. Being a bilingual educator is definitely more than just a career for me, it's a full-blown political stance and attitude toward the value of other languages and cultures.

all i can say is: this shit is craazzzy.
