When I boot up, my default input language is Hebrew. I can change the language when I boot up, (click on it, etc) but I really just want it to be English by default.

Additionally, should I attempt to sign into a different user, and then back into the first account it will automatically change the input language to English.

What is going on, and how can I fix it?

Note: I already have English set above Hebrew.
