Elmhurst, Illinois, is another school district that has decided to sacrifice its foreign language program in elementary schools. Its Board of Education needs to cut another $800,000 from next year’s budget, so foreign language instruction got the axe. School districts in the state of Kansas, too, have ended their foreign language programs, especially at the elementary and middle school levels (http://www.kansas.com/2010/02/07/1170391/focus-on-basics-cuts-foreign-language.html). Another Philadelphia suburb (Phoenixville) is considering eliminating its Spanish Immersion Program, beginning with first grade as well as its World Language Program at the elementary level (http://www.phoenixvillenews.com/articles/2010/04/12/news/doc4bc33aaf1f9ac357109846.txt). The language drain continues. Glub, glub, glub . . .
