I understand where you are coming from, but your comment means that you are uninformed as to the benefits of learning a world language. First of all, our country is changing rapidly and our children need to be able to compete in a global world. Many jobs require (or search for) employees who are bilingual, and the demand for bilingual employees will only increase in the future. Secondly, the English language is very difficult to master but teaching children a second language helps with native language acquisition. According to USA Today, by the year 2050, the Hispanic population in the U.S. is expected to reach more than 30%. If that is not reason enough to teach our kids a world language, then I don't think we are truly concerned about our childrens' futures.
