This story is about an honor student who is punished by his teacher, for when speaking English, he would often pronounce words of Spanish language origin, such as burrito, carne asada or Mexico, with a Spanish accent.
This sparked his Father's interest to investigate if it's against his teacher's preference... only to discover that it's this public school's district policy. With no stats to prove said instituted policy being a benefit. He continues to be passed along from one person to another and up the red tape chain of command. Will this frustrated father find answers or only more rhetoric and excuses?
