Should English be compulsory in elementary schools?

An article in The Japan Times Online discusses the political and social environment surrounding the debate about whether to make English language classes part of the elementary school curriculum. It sounds as if it is not so much a question of if but now one of when.

My guess is that it will happen and teachers saddled with the responsibilities will be woefully unprepared.
