School districts in Arizona are under orders from the state's Department of Education to remove from classrooms teachers who speak English with a very heavy accent or whose speech is ungrammatical.It's probably not rational, given what is going on in Arizona, to wonder if a teacher who was born and raised in Yazoo, Mississippi or Boston, Massachusetts or the Borough of Brooklyn, NY or Machais, Maine would be rejected as an English teacher in Arizona.
Of course they would not be rejected. There is only one accent that is going to be forbidden in Arizona schools. And it sure isn't going to be a German one.
C'mon, Arizona, you're making it far too easy for us to make fun of you. In the space of a handful of weeks, you've managed to overtake Texas ("Thomas Jefferson, who?"), Kansas ("what is this `science' you suggest we larn our children?") as the looniest state in the Union. At this rate, we'll end up stringing razor wire around your borders and proclaiming your state to be the National Nut House.
