Letter to the Editor: Spanish is here to stay; keep it in Williamson County curriculum, too

"Very soon the school board will be voting on whether to fund the Spanish language program in the elementary schools. (Apparently some of the principals are against the program, believing that the future does not include needing to speak Spanish.) As a parent, I would like to see Williamson County keep our Spanish program."

"Currently we are ahead of the curve offering elementary Spanish — something only some of the private schools are doing. The reality is that our children are going to need to speak Spanish. Unless something changes drastically in our country, by the year 2040, the Hispanic population will be the majority in California. (followed shortly by Texas and Florida)."

"We need to stay ahead of the curve. Our children must be prepared for their future, and their future will include Spanish."
