Everything stated in the July 2 letter, “Onus on students,” about LULAC’s recent lawsuit contains valid points.

There is one point that was not noted.

When these children are sent home with homework, they need help from an English speaking parent.

Most of these children do not have the help of an English speaking parent.

I attend numerous elementary and middle school functions and the parents attending do not converse in English.

They insist on speaking Spanish.

These parents make it extremely difficult for their children to be successful in English speaking schools.
