Transfer money to French immersion

I so wish I spoke French and learning to do so is still on my bucket list.

In response to Mr. Elley’s letter in today’s Citizen, it occurs to me that perhaps the people in China, Taiwan and Japan “who will be involved in trade and commerce with Pacific Rim nations” should be taught English in their schools (English or French in Canada; perhaps English and Spanish in the U.S.).

I so wish I spoke French and learning to do so is still on my bucket list. I admire the parents who are happy to camp out to ensure spots for their children in the scarce programs available in this province.

Perhaps we could transfer the taxpayers’ money currently given to so-called private schools to opening more French immersion classes.
