All the opposition to this new program puzzles me. Of course there was some concern when Hoover, Ohlone and Spanish immersion were started. However, these days I hear nothing but positive feedback- with a few exceptions from lottery losers.
I for one will be happy to see a new program if for no other reason than it will help alleviate overcrowding in schools. Some of the parents in the crowded north side schools where space is scarce will no doubt opt for this new program and in the process reduce overcrowding.
Palo Alto and the Valley were built on innovation- lets not be scared of something new!
