The Spanish at Frick Middle School -- it is el sucko

Today was open house and parent teacher conference day for the Pgh Public Schools.

Our Elementary School, Phillips, -- or is it now, Pittsburgh Phillips, a K-5 school, has wonderful Spanish opportunities. The school is half-magnet and half-neighborhood. It is a great school.

However, when the kids go to Frick Middle School for grades 6, 7 and 8, they regress.

Last year, there were four or more Spanish teachers for two slots. This year, the Spanish teacher skipped parent teacher conference night.
