Chinese immersion programs
I may be misinformed, but I heard that for some of the mandarin and/or the Cantonese immersion programs, the students must be home speakers. Is this true? If it is, I do not think that is fair or appropriate. There is no such rule for the spanish language immersion programs. I think the programs are a fantastic idea, but I do not like limits on who can participate, if indeed that is true. The immersion programs are a great alternative to the mainstream programs in our neighborhood schools. These opportunities should not be limited to one population of the student body.
I indeed hope that I have been misinformed.
