No smoking AND bilingual schools?

I feel like I’m getting two early Christmas presents… first the congress more or less finalized the law completely banning smoking from restaurants, bars, nightclubs without exception. The rules take effect January 2nd.

In the second piece of news, it looks like the Supreme Court is about to abolish the imposition of Catalan in the school system here. I’m sure there will be much gnashing of teeth and complaints about Spanish imperialism.

I’d be pretty excited about not having to pay two arms, a leg and a kidney to send our kids to school that has a reasonable mix between Spanish, Catalan and English. Unfortunately I’m sure our kids will have graduated by the time anything changes.
