Teachers and illegals

Why are the teachers getting pink slips? We really need them. California is already at the bottom of the barrel.

I have seen them marching in protest because of this. I know quite a few teachers in our school districts. I would like to know if all the teachers and other areas of government would be willing to trade the rising taxes and pink slips for all material printed only in English.

How much money would be saved if this were enacted? I know that all the voting material is already in multiple languages. Would this be enough to save some jobs? If you are voting you are required to learn English to take these tests. I know that they receive sample documents before the election.

Let someone who speaks and reads English (family members who have gone through our school systems) help them check the boxes on the sample ballot. I would like to know why we have to learn another language for all the different cultures here.

If we apply for a job, they ask us if we can speak Spanish. If we say no, there answer is, "Sorry, we can't use you."

Take a course to learn how. When we inquire about the class, we are told we have to pay to learn. This is wrong. The illegals that are here refuse to learn the English language. They can go to school to learn for free.

Even the governor learned English to live here. I, for one, would vote to change the printing of materials to English only if it would save a teacher's job. How about the rest of you out there? Job or no job?
