Kids grouping up and speaking another language other than english causes trouble. Yes it totaly sucks that that causes trouble, but facts are facts.

I am sorry, but i have to agree with it. This kid was in Alternative school because he was a trouble maker. Those teachers deal with so much on a day to day basis. We are not talking your typical high school here. They cant speak spanish for good reason. They are not trying to be butt heads, they are trying to keep the kids safe. This kid was told repeatedly not to speak spanish, yet he did it again. He is playing the innocent card and I dont buy it. Maybe it was an innocent conversation this time. That is not the point here.
I agree with you, but its been this way for so long, i doubt if anyone can change what people feel comfortable in doing.

Well imo they are in America and they should be forced to speak English if they want to assimilate among us!
I'm not keen on something like ebonics, though. That isn't a merge of two languages, just a bastardization of one language.
