Pondering - have to agree with you and your father-in-law. English, although we do not have an official language, but most talk, and business is done in English,should be understood, spoken and read, as well as being written in English or the public school system should not accept the child, and or adult. This is holding an already public school (U.S.) system that is 'sick', back.
Furthermore, knowledge of the English language will get our Hispanic minority (people) further ahead in the long run. They are primarilly good people and deserve that much, but first they must discipline themselves and learn the language of 'the land.'Slainte
