2012 Presidential Candidates’ Position on Foreign Language Learning

It seems that Republican hopeful Rick Santorum prefers that English be the “official” language of the U.S., but he has not mentioned whether or not he supports the teaching of foreign languages from a young age in elementary schools. Mitt Romney, according to a blog on edweek.org, evidently does not think that bilingual programs are efficient or effective and does not support them (even though he supposedly speaks French as well) President Obama and Republican John McCain, on the other hand, are advocates of bilingual education. So, where do the others stand? More on this as their stands become available (if they do at all)
