More area schools embrace Chinese-immersion method
from The Wall Street Journal
When kindergartners arrive at the Presidio Knolls School in San Francisco for their first day of class, they will be allowed to speak English only on the playground and at a few other times. Most classes will be taught in Chinese. "There's a real demand for this kind of learning," says Alfonso Orsini, the head of the school, which is adding a kindergarten after several years as a Chinese-language preschool. Construction crews are working to finish the school's campus, a former run-down church on 10th Street. The plan calls for eventually enrolling students through eighth grade.
