Foreign children going to school for the first time should already know the same amount of English as other kids the same age. Any parent that allows it to be any different should be ashamed of themselves.
Teachers are not their to teach children English from scratch and printing leaflets in all kinds of languages is just allowing a daft situation to continue.
Well I do actually agre with this. Teachers have had more and more regulation and paperwork dropped on them over the last 20 years and I can imagine the last thing they (and the other pupils) need is for children speaking virtually no English to be dumped in the class.
Then again, maybe the teachers should stop whingeing and get on with doing a full day's work. They do enjoy pretty long paid holidays every year.
