Oregon mulls native language diploma
Some Oregon high school students who possess only intermediate English skills but read and write well in their native language will be able to qualify for a diploma using those native language skills.
The Oregon Board of Education voted for the policy, which state officials estimate could apply to 300 to 400 high school seniors out of about 36,000 who graduate each year.
Oregon's new diploma will be just like Oregon's old drivers license: made easy for illegal aliens.
A child who is born here in America will be held to a higher standard for graduation than an illegal alien. And the legitimate students who can legally get a job after high school are set up for failure since they aren't taught the necessary skills to communicate verbally and on paper.
If the schools are failing with their current method of teaching ESL and "native language classes" perhaps they should try English immersion. Of course, if the schools are satisfied with lowering standards and setting kids up for failure then by all means, keep up the good work.
