Bear in mind that it does, particularly when it is an unknown language in the community who had no say in the drafting of the legislation to begin with.

What legislation is that that dictated which language was spoken in the home , the home where infants learn their first tongue ?

What country on what planet are you alluding to ?

How could parents pass on their language in confidence when violence was imposed along with deliberate humiliation and ridicule of their children under Scottish education when they did? The home was disouraged. And what about the children sent away to schools elsewhere to board? They were deliberately targetted by Scottish legislation.

If that were true , you would be able to quote chapter and verse of the specfic legislation .
So , quote it .
Quote the bit that targets the Gaelic language , the part that mentions it by name .

How was the home 'discouraged' ?
Did the local headmaster invade it , the school inspectors , the police ?
Explain yourself ?

Its amazing how defensive some people can become for 19th century Anglophone legislation. the results were a dislocation between generations and a choice between poverty and giving up a language to avoid ridicule and punishment. No local communities had a say in this.

Yes , your defensiveness is amazing , almost as amazing as your dishonesty .

The 1872 education Act made no mention of Gaelic at all .
It's only concern was universal compulsory education .
Nothing stopped Gaelic speaking parents teaching their children the language except the parents themselves .
The same applied to many communities around the world , including this one here that I was born to and still live in .
Many of the old folk here acknowledge that they made the wrong choice when they decided to withhold Te Reo Maori from their children .
Sad but true .
