Maybe we should send her to a Mexican boarding school?

We were a little concerned about how well our daughter would learn the subjects, like math, that are taught to her in Spanish as part of the Spanish Immersion program at her school, but the literature assured us that while kids may fall behind in these subjects at the beginning, they catch up over time as their fluency improves.

We just had our first report card and parent teacher conference since she started the program.  As it turns out, she is excelling in all the subjects she is learning in Spanish, but during the English half of the day, she goofs off and doesn't complete any of her work.  Hmm.
