International Baccalaureate Charter Proposal
Original post made by Asher Waldfogel, Old Palo Alto, on May 29, 2007
The published top five list of community priorities puts more emphasis on
English (reading comprehension/literary analysis)
Social studies (history/government/economics)
Tradeoffs on immersion vs FLES have nothing to do with the published priorities and are just two ways of doing something that was not previously in the top five.
My suggestion: let's organize a charter petition for an International Baccalaureate program. It's a globally recognized, academically rigorous program. It will deliver our top five priorities as well as language instruction.
Why do this now? Because we have no control over what charters other people petition or propose, and we have no control over how District Staff respond to charter threats. We can only control our own ability to request programs that meet different segments of community priorities and conform to state law.
