Spanish-speaking students banned from speaking Spanish in school

Here’s a question that gets a lot of debate: should Spanish-speaking children be told to speak only English at school?

A Texas middle school is under fire because students say they were banned from speaking Spanish in class, even among themselves. The students say the principal announced the rule, but a letter from the superintendent says that it is not the school policy.

In any case, the Spanish-speaking students say it makes them the target of discrimination by other students.

Do you think the students should be able to speak Spanish to each other in class? Join the conversation on our Facebook page:
