Some parents have asked me about programs that require families to sign a contract, much as charter schools sometimes do, spelling out what’s expected of students and families at the beginning.

Here’s the webpage of a new Mandarin immersion program starting up in Garland, Texas.

As I’ve written in my book, families sometimes choose Mandarin immersion not so much for the language itself but for the type of students their children will be in school with. In Garland, it’s clearly going to be an academically focused, disciplined bunch of kids.
