Re: English-only proposition
Lisa Graham-Keegan supported Prop 203 because studies showed "English-only" works best for schools trying to get students acclimated to the language quickly. The problem of providing segregated classrooms year after year is compounded by the growing number of students. It stands to reason that to mainstream these students quickly would lessen the burden on the schools. It would also be doing the students a favor, giving them relevance and a better future to learn reading, writing, and arithmetic in English, in our English speaking society; not to mention making new friends.
