Learning foreign languages early

With all this globalization, it is remarkable that so few elementary schools teach foreign languages. Everyone knows that a language is best learned when young. A few districts are wising up as this NYT report shows.

My district is going to carry on not wising up on this score.

Every parent here, bar none, wants a foreign language program beginning in Kindergarten or 1st grade.

We aren't going to get it.

We're going to get the middle school model.
