English Only Policy Of Catholic School Under Attack

25 May

If you wish to speak the language of your national origin speak it at home.  Do not come to the U.S. and make demands such as these; it don’t belong here.  Assimilate or leave; it’s your choice.  Speak Enlish only in America; it’s our choice.  This is a private school you chose to attend, you knew the policies; follow them or get out.  There is no discrimination here, you sought out the school, you put yourself in this situation; that is not suffering that is called abusing our justice system.

WICHITA — Four Hispanic families are suing St. Anne’s Catholic School over a policy that requires students to speak English at all times while at school.

The lawsuit, filed Monday, calls for an end to the policy and asks for an order barring similar policies at other diocese schools. It seeks the return of one student to the school who was allegedly kicked out for refusing to sign the “English only” pledge. And it asks for court costs and unspecified damages for discrimination and emotional suffering.  [more]
