The Travisty in what happened in the WestLinn Wilsonville School District was the way the process of cutting the Spanish Immersion Program was dealt with. NO program should have been brought out in an isolated manner like this.
The point was the families effected and more importantly the children were not given the appropiate consideration that all other programs will be given. Our point has always been to include our program side by side with all the other offerings and then look at what costs are associated with them and what the benefits are side by side. Then the board and district makes a level headed, well informed decision based on the facts rather than by reacting to a political agenda or district pressure.
The process for eliminating the language immersion program was FLAWED in everyway. No matter what program your kids are in or what activites your kids participate in if we allow decision makers to make decision in this manner the system fails us all.
The Budget crisis is serious and we need leadership which is fair and just.
