Pondering public "education"

Being connected to public education for my whole life excerpt for the first 7 years of it - as a student, teacher and mom of students - I can completely agree with this and I have always helped my children to learn differently in addition to what they are taught in school. And I have altered my German classes as far as it goes in the existing system. But, honestly, I don't think it makes a big difference for the students, and it's a torture for me as for them. The best way to learn a language would be to put them into an environment, where nobody speaks their mother tongue :) Any ideas, what to do in my classes?
