    I had to take a foreign language in the 6th grade, in the 60s , if ya don't use it you'll lose it. Ya I never learned it in the first place.

    I chose not to have my child in an immersion program. As a foreign language teacher, I feel I'm informed about the pros and cons more than enough to make that decision.

    The immersion program at my child's school is elitist, drains money away from other classes, and ends up hitting a wall when immersion services just can't be provided in 7th-12th grade.

    I'm not sold on it and I'm definitely not a fan of it in my district.

    I agree! My nephew is in one of these programs and he is learning so much! It will open many doors to him in the future.
