Arizona Ethnic Studies Classes Banned, Teachers With Accents Can No Longer Teach English



when i first saw this headline, linked through a friend's facebook, i thought it was a joke headline from the onion, a jab at arizona's immigration law sb1070. alas, i was wrong...

hey, speaking of wrong, let's read a few excerpts from the article, which can be viewed in full here.
"Meanwhile, in a move that was more covert until the Wall Street Journal uncovered it, the Arizona Department of Education has told schools that teachers with 'heavy' or 'ungrammatical' accents are no longer allowed to teach English classes."

"Teachers who don't meet the new fluency standards have the option of taking classes to improve their English, the Journal reports, but if they fail to reach the state's targets would be fired or reassigned."

please feel free to discuss in the comments section or to pass the article along.
