Arizona Looks To Reassign Teachers With Heavy Accents

The Arizona Board of Education is sending evaluators into classrooms to see if teachers speak good enough English.

Teachers who are not fluent in English, who make grammatical errors while speaking or who have heavy accents will be temporarily reassigned.

“As you expect science teachers to know science, math teachers to know math, you expect a teacher who is teaching the kids English to know English,” said Tom Home, state superintendent of public instruction.

State officials say this has nothing to do with the state’s recently-passed immigration law. Critics say with cuts in education, the focus shoudl be elsewhere.
