English usage

Does the United States need an official language?   
           Language says Balmer (1992) is the essential medium of expression upon which all cultures depend.  Most peoples and cultures do not willingly accept intrusion upon their rights to use their native language.  At the same time, most nations in the world are composed of more than one language group, and many, including the United States have experienced conflict between groups (Balmer, 1992).  This question remains unanswered which involves different groups of people to sort out the issue of an official language if it can be solved.  Thus, this conflict in the USA is between those wishing to ensure the continued dominance of English and those who may not.  
           Attempting to answer the question Crawford (2011) exposes his idea on how the USA has been facing that issue.  He declares that many Americans responded: Why not? From 1981 to 1988, fourteen states recognized English through statutes or constitutional amendments, for a total of 16 Official English states (Crawford, 2011).  But on the other hand a great number of states are remaining neutral or assumed a different perspective until now. 
            Through the examination of controversies it is worthwhile to note that the United States stands on the use of English as the official language; shall we say per se or official de facto.
Now, where does bilingualism enter the scenario?   There is no doubt additional tensions rose because of this conflicting issue of an official language.  This question is still unanswered, and I would like to hear from you; to share any tensions, obstacles, or personal experiences resulting from your language usage.

I think, the education of female is exceedingly essential in today’s world because in this technical and exciting era a society cannot get success in any field of life without the contribution of the women. Educated women can contribute very well in the betterment of any state.

We don't need another language. We should just use English, that's all.
