Two Italian parliamentarians, both members of the Northern League political party, have proposed a law which would institute classes for immigrant children who do not speak Italian. To be admitted into the Italian state school system these children, having attended the classes, would have to take a test to show that they had sufficient command of the language and the culture to be inserted easily into Italian school and not hold up the progress of the class. The proposal has met with opposition from Ermete Realacci of the centre-left Margherita political party; he says that Italy needs integration not new ghettos.
