In response to VOFREASON, The language program at Gilbert Elementary is not designed as a crutch for kids that don't speak English. It's primarily to teach English speakers Spanish. You may not have noticed but there are many Hispanics in Arizona (and the rest of the country) and the business opportunities south of the border, including South America, are significant (Think about the oil bidness, Jethro!)
And in response to ignorant PATRIOTMOM, the language program is not the focus of the entire school for every grade. The program does not cover every grade level and it is an optional program that parents can choose for their students. If you have a student that is smarter than the children that PATRIOTMOM has, then the language program might be a great way to increase your child's intelligence and keep your child challenged.[smile][smile]7 months ago
