    Allusions (1)

    • Ms. Meydo: This is a bilingual school.
      Buster attends a school in this episode where students are taught in both English in Spanish. Although some schools consider this necessary because they have Spanish-speaking students, others have argued that this only keeps Spanish-speaking students from learning as much English as they need and should be eliminated.
