An English teacher at Cliffside Park High School in northern New Jersey is under fire after making controversial remarks to her class. “Military men and women are … not fighting for your right to speak Spanish,” she was recorded on Snapchat saying. “They’re fighting for your right to speak American.” The following week, students staged a walkout in protest. The school board is investigating the incident.

The United States has no designated official language but 32 states do have laws making English their official language. The teacher was wrong to say what she said as the military are not fighting for any specific language there fighting supposedly for US interests .

I just love how politely these kids left the class and how grounded that one boy sounded on the interview.

In an ideal world all teachers would be smart people, who teach their students valuable and meaningful things. In reality there are quite a lot of idiots among them. Soldiers fighting for the right to "speak American"... I don't even know whether I should laugh or weep at such stupidity.
