Date: Fri, 8 Sep 1995 15:53:24 EDT From: Bruce Southard Subject: Re: English-Only States USA Today's Thursday edition (9/7/95) had a map identifying the twenty-two states with English-only laws. The map also gave the year the legislation was passed. I was surprised to see North Carolina on the list; evidently the legislation passed in 1987, a couple of years before I moved here. There is currently litigation involving the state's lackluster performance in providing ESL instruction. I'm surprised that one side or the other hasn't raised the English-only issue.
