Massachusetts Question 2, 2002

Massachusetts Ballot Question 2 (2002) replaced Massachusetts education law providing for transitional bilingual education in public schools with a law requiring that all public school children be taught all subjects in English and be placed in English language classrooms, except under special circumstances.[1] Opponents of the proposition said that the law would allow teachers to be personally sued for teaching in a language other than English, and the Massachusetts Legislature’s Joint Committee on Education, Arts and Humanities rejected the petition,[2] but it was approved into law by seventy percent of the voters.[3]
