I don't think a foreign language should be required to graduate. As
an elective it would be okay. Why? Because it should be up to the parents
and students to decide whether learning another language may or may not be beneficial to them. Not left up to the state.
I took two years of French in high school (just for fun not because I was forced) and I'm leisurely learning a little Spanish on my own at this time.
Someone who resents learning Spanish is'nt going to be very fluent or know much Spanish at the end of their course. (My opinion).
