Fariña suggests buying Rosetta Stone to learn foreign languages

Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña offered startling advice to parents upset
at cuts to foreign language classes: If you don’t like it, buy a $200
Rosetta Stone program so kids can teach themselves.

Fariña shocked parents at a community meeting in Inwood on Dec. 15 with her
response to a complaint from the mother of a seventh-grader at Harlem’s
Mott Hall School, who griped that her son’s French class had been cut from
two days a week to only one.
