Ziege actually quoted the OP, but you cut it from your response.

The OP wrote:

and children should learn English (only) in school. They can brush up on their Spanish at home See post 655370

Why do you assume that the OP did not mean what the OP wrote?

"children should learn English (only) in school"

if that is not what the OP meant, why is it the reader's fault for failing to divine a meaning different from what was written?



My take was that CC simply worded that a bit poorly. I never thought she was saying that no foreign languages should be taught in American schools.
