The federal government is investigating whether Arizona has discriminated against teachers who are not native English speakers, state Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Horne confirmed Tuesday.

The state Department of Education for years has been monitoring English fluency of teachers who instruct English learners, but in April began instructing districts to fire teachers who weren't proficient in the language.

The probe was launched by the U.S. Department of Justice in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Education.

Hundreds of public-school teachers statewide instruct students who need special assistance in learning English.

What's with our government? We all know what this is about and it needs to be investigated why Arizona is under fire by this administration. Something else for the new Congress to check out.

This is a tried and true litigation technique, usually used by shyster lawyers......what else could we expect from this administration?

 

The strategy is to file as many suits as possible, and file as many motions and other filings as can be justified. The goal is to make it so expensive as to have the defendents settle rather than continue the expense of defending themselves against the various suits. It is an effective strategy, and is the primary motivation for the "Loser Pays" movement within civil litigation circles.
