Some scholar wrote this in that same thread the other day:
"We do need to ban ESL concepts in public schools. The only way for non-English speaking children to learn EFFECTIVE English to succeed in college and the work environment is immersion in English only."
”That's just about the stupidest idea I've ever heard. Are you suggesting non-speakers of English be immersed in the American populous to learn the language? Right! The average American citizen can’t write, speak or punctuate his or her way out of a wet paper sack, let alone teach someone English. Just take a look at some of the posts in this thread.”
