Is there any chance the Palo Alto schools will ever offer a foreign language education for all elementary school students? Any suggestions on how to encourage it?
If not during the school day, how about a good afterschool program located at the school (2 or 3 days a week, with scholarships for anyone who needs it)? It seems better for the kids to have it all at one place. My understanding is that teachers generally need their classrooms to get ready for the next day, thus there is little room for such a program (at least at Duveneck).
Any groups working on such goals?
