Reader feedback: Multi-language education is normal

Re: Parliament greenlights Hungarian university, Flash News, Oct 27 - Nov 2, Vol 9, No 41

There have been Slovak universities [such as City University] that have taught in languages other than Slovak for years, mostly in English. I don't think that the native language of 10% of Slovakia's population is English-speaking, yet this practice does not seem to bother anyone.

It's amazing how many old nationalists come out from hiding from under their rocks, whenever Hungarian speakers set one step further in the direction of equal opportunities, which in [the old nationalists'] twisted mind automatically translates into "discrimination" against the majority.

Are countries like Canada, Switzerland, and Belgium, where all native linguistic groups have their own educational systems, segregated societies?
