I for one look forward to sending my son to 0th grade, since it won't be called "Kindergarten" anymore.

In all seriousness, the bill does exempt such "common usage" words and phrases that have made their way into the English language. It doesn't spell out who makes the call on when a word or phrase becomes common usage.

So perhaps there's a make-work provision for English teachers after all.

Does this mean that non-English city names like Cokato will have to be changed? :-)
