is there any way you could afford some sort of non-public schooling?  Even a Catholic school might be preferable, and the tuition in archdiocese schools is usually fairly reasonable.

Seconded. Get your boy out, now, any way you can. Unless your son is already fluent (or reasonably so) in Spanish, he's going to lose half his education every day trying to handle two things at once.

I am all in favor of children learning other languages and cultures - we taught our children (and now the grandkids) all the languages we know using the immersion method, followed up by summer holidays in the various countries (That was painful in the early years - bloody expensive and we had to scrimp like mad to do it). But it was OUR decision. Not some school board.

When the state considers children its possessions (and parents irrelevant), the situation in Navy's school district is the result.

That is one of the both saddest and most accurate summaries I have seen in a long time.  **nononono*
