The debate whether bilingual education should be promoted in schools is being discussed by intellectuals across America. Supporters of an all-English based curriculum believe that the more immersed in English a Spanish-speaking student is, the sooner he or she will begin to understand it and use it to communicate with others. On the other hand stand those who propose a bilingual education curriculum beginning in elementary school; teaching classes in Spanish to students who do not fully understand English will help them keep up in other subjects—like math and science—with their Anglophone peers until they eventually become fluent in English. You can read more about this here.

Theories backed by research of what to do may be feasible and practical, but the fact remains that if students are not supported at home, then learning English will be more difficult. Perhaps, to help their children and improve their chances of getting better jobs, Hispanophone parents should be the ones learning English. I believe the problem, then, lies in how they will finance their education, and whether they will have the time to study. Perhaps local governments and businesses can come up with alternatives for the benefit of their respective communities.
