Should we pay tutors to teach immigrants their own language?

Has anyone seen this in the Sunday Express today?

It talks about councils spending money on encouraging the young people to learn their parents language. Tower Hamlets Council spokesman viewpoint is that: “We teach community languages for two reasons: proficiency in a mother tongue aids with proficiency in a second language. “And secondly, pride and knowledge in your own background aids in promoting community cohesion.”
