Every thread associated with Mandarin Immersion recently in the Town Square has been dominated by critics. We have learned a lot about perceived and actual drawbacks. What we haven't had since January 30 when the effort to persuade the board to approve Choice MI at Ohlone fell one vote short is a discussion of why the plan before the board is a good deal for PAUSD.
The best argument for MI at Ohlone is not that a charter will be more detrimental than choice. It may appear to be the clincher, but that's not a reason worthy of this district.
What's your best argument for why the plan before the board (see PAUSD web site to refresh your memory) should be approved and the community should appreciate having this option available?
