Up In The Morning And Off To School

Most of us looked forward to summers as a break from what we thought was a long school year.  You will see from the newspaper story below that this young kid was not only back in school, but was the only American in the classroom.  

Imagine yourself at his age in a classroom of 54 Chinese and a Chinese teacher who spoke no English.  His assignment for his time there should have been to name his classmates!  Seriously, think how this expanded his world of experiences.
