newbie Posted June 9, 2009 Share Posted June 9, 2009 My sis has her son in a new spanish immersion school. He started w/K. Now he is in first, 7 yo. he cannot read, write or do math in English. Now I hear he is not doing good in Spanish, so needs tutor wkly. I talked to him yesterday and his conjugation is all messed up. I told my sis to pull him and put him in reg. 2nd grade this fall, to have him do major catchup. She wont listen. To me, it seems that experiment is failing and switch before they wait til 6th grade. Their theory is he will fail first couple yrs than swing around and be smarter. But, I told her w/any foreign language your IQ is higher, no matter when you take it. I tried to stop myself thinking about the shoe on the other foot. She could have slapped me w/homeschooling and social. So, am I a hypocrite and I should shut my mouth.
