... yes, we've taken the plunge and decided to put our kid in a local school...
Or, so we thought -we recevived an official letter (in German, clearly) telling us we're to send the child on the buss to a school which will provide him with "intense German lessons" as all children who don't speak German need to do this.
Uppon checking we discovered that our child will be the youngest by two years in this group of "problem children" - problems which, we are told, are not language related. What we had previously hoped for was an immerssion in the local school directly (based on the fact that one of us speaks fluent German and could help at home and the fact that the child is young already bi-lingual so has a good grasp of languanges etc).
It turns out that our otherwise terribly innefficient relocation agent agreed without our knowledge to send our child to this school.
We are angry with the stupidity of the relocation agent and trully concenred for our child. We can appeal - which, of course, we will - but gosh, starting our life in a new country with a legal case.. what a start.
Has anyone got any experiences of the sort? Any suggestions on how to handle this appart from a full on legal action?
OH, YES: we have till Monday (two days from now) to appeal....
