    A very good article. Dismantling the fine world languages program built over the years by George Watson by starting with cutting it form the middle schools is a very sad and discouraging thought. My daughters were WHS students during Mr. Watson’s tenure at the High School, and their study of Spanish helped them immeasureably. Esther studied geology, her college major, in the school of engineering at the University of Chile her entire junior year abroad, and Frances majored in Spanish language and Latin American Studies as an undergrad and now teaches Spanish at the high school level. I do not believe they would have chosen these very rewarding paths without WHS’s fine language program.
