John Frohnmayer on Foreign Policy

Independent Challenger


Teaching students Farsi & Arabic is best military investment

[To fight the war on terror], we must know the other nations of the world. Therefore, starting in grade school, we should teach 50,000 students per year to speak Farsi, Arabic, Mandarin, and dozens of other languages. (This would cost less than a single B-2 bomber.) These children must learn other cultures because we cannot afford the arrogance that we need only know English and that only our culture has merit.
