Education: National Security Imperative
Matt Yglesias and Julian Sanchez have already had fun with this, but it seems John McCormack of The Weekly Standard is upset with Barack Obama for daring to suggest that American students should learn foreign languages. (He even sneaks in a nice dig at immigrants, classy fellow that he is; I’m just going to guess he’s never spent several weeks in a shipping container in pursuit of asylum.) Yeah! Right on, McCormack! Why would we possibly want public schools to teach, like, Arabic, Urdu, Pashto, or Dari?
