Nope; you miss the point

were this started to educate students in Sapnish skills, that would be one thing.

BUT, this was started due to the increase in non-English speaking students.

Let their parents cover the expense of teaching little Pancho or Dora to speaka de Eglish. But then, if the Parents spoke fluent English, so would the children.

But, if as another Poster noted, Chinese is becoming the dominant language in the world economy, should they not be teaching Chinese?

And frankly, isn't the age of 5 a tad early to start children entering their first year of kindergarden? It seems it would be challenging enough for them to make the transition from the sheltered nest of home to the group environment of the classroom.
