French or not at Paly?
Original post made by homme de palo alto, Palo Alto High School, on Jul 22, 2007
i have heard that one of the high schools (Paly) will cancel the upper most French class (French 5AP) or has actually already cancelled it. I am not sure why one school would offer european languages (Gunn Does i hear) and not the other. Is this an indication of the differences in quality in the two schools. I also see by looking closely at cirriculum offered that Gunn still offers European hsitory but i hear that Paly does not. Why is there such a difference? Isn't it normal to have equity in classes offered between high schools in the same town? What do the unfortunate students do now who have completed the 4 years of French at Paly and then suddenly have it pulled out from under them. 5 years is necessary for some colleges in the US. So Play does not care about these Students?
What does the new principal have to say about this?
French is a useful and important language - am i right?
Is there anything that can be done to reverse an apparent decision to cancel out such an important program?
