MEYER V. NEBRASKA WELCOMES THE POLYGLOTUp until 1923, it was actually illegal for some schools to teach a foreign language before the eighth grade. The impact, here, was the increased segregation of those students who were unable to speak English. When the ban was reversed, American students had foreign languages incorporated into their early education, a subtle tactic that not only helped them befriend and include non-English-speaking students, it also created a worldliness in American students that’s helped us become more tolerant of foreign cultures. Hahahahahah, no not really.
