Michigan State Rep. Phil Potvin has introduced a bill that would end regulations mandating all high-school students take foreign-language courses, contending that the requirement interferes with students' ability to receive vocational training. Some educators are speaking out against the bill. "We believe it is in the best interest of students, the community and the nation ... to have a citizenry that is linguistically competent in more than one language," said Jackie Moase-Burke, former president of the Michigan World Language Association.
