I wonder if folk who are dead set against Gaelic Medium Education and things such as Gaelic road signs and, well, any public money being spent on the language are aware they’re pretty much for a continued state sponsored eradication of a language?
Here’s me, having to stay on my island unable to move to the place that has the most Gaelic speakers in Scotland (Glasgow) because I can’t get my future children taught in what will be their first language.
Folk say that it’s being ‘shoved down their throats’ but all the schools that are opening are because of local parents campaigning for it. It’s not like your child is being forced to attend a school with a different language.
God alone knows what that must be like. Us Gaels could never relate to THAT.
(Plus the whole 'its costing money!’ thing…. I never realised it what only your children that are allowed having a publicly funded education. My bad!)
