What is Official English?
Declaring English the official language means that official government business at all levels must be conducted solely in English. This includes all public documents, records, legislation and regulations, as well as hearings, official ceremonies and public meetings. Official English legislation contains common-sense exceptions permitting the use of languages other than English for such things as public health and safety services, judicial proceedings, foreign language instruction and the promotion of tourism (US English, 2011).
Who do you think is responsible why the USA does not have an official language? How close is the USA to adopting Spanish as a second official language? Academically speaking, which children would perform better in school, mono-linguistic or bilingual students? Most of the countries of the world are bilingual with two official languages. Why the USA has only one language under de facto acceptance?
