Mexicans, the French, Russians, and other people that have the ability to speak multiple languages have the right not take mandatory language classes in order to graduate because we have already learned a second language, our native and our foreign language
ex. I'm Mexican, and I learned both Spanish and English while growing up.

Learning another language in school is not worth the time and energy anymore. The time wasted for secondary language speakers to relearn their own language is like re-teaching an author how to write.

If you are coming to a country,ex:canada, and you're from India, then you have to take a second language becauseyou would'nt know any English. And to put some technicality in, you could re-teach an author how to write. If he/she gets in an accident, and loses an arm, it would take a while to get used to the prosthetic and learn to write with it.

Sorry, I meant to say that multiple language speakers have the right to not take language classes in school.

You said "Mexicans, the French, Russians, and other people that have the ability to speak multiple languages have the right not take mandatory language classes". You are Con in the debate, so you want the right removed?
