My Camera Editorial Advisory Board comment published on May 3, 2008:
What fun one of my dear friends has over native English speakers who don’t know when to use “my friend and I” or “my friend and me.” The humiliating and kind of nerve-racking part is my friend is from Mexico. She often points out mistakes Americans make in speaking English. She also says native, English-speaking Americans should study English like she did, when she lived in Mexico before she became a U.S. citizen.

She’s right, and Sen. Shawn Mitchell, R-Broomfield, is right in sponsoring Senate Bill 098. The bill would require school districts and the state charter school institute board to adopt English language competency as a requirement for high school graduation during or after the spring semester of 2013.

The bill passed its third Senate reading on Friday. Communicating competently in English will help graduates be safer, have better employment opportunities and enjoy a more fulfilling participation in society.
