Balearic teaching union opposes English-language instruction

It has always struck me as pretty damn schizo that proponents of forced Catalan immersion often suggest that, while Spanish is taboo, they would be open to the use of another vigorously expanding global language, English. So it's good to see that in defence of the high-quality public education for which the Balearics are known the Sindicat de Treballadores i Treballadors-Intersindical is encouraging schools to refuse to introduce English-language instruction, citing members' job prospects as well as the status of the Chosen Language. Fucked translation is a natural choice where the strategic goal is to maximise pie share rather than size.
