Question for WLWV School District: Why is it that numerous other school districts in Oregon and nationwide are able to run language immersion classes on a cost-neutral basis (meaning other than some nominal set-up costs, the cost to run the classroom is no more than the cost to run an English-language classroom) and WLWV claims that it is not? Experts across the board agree that set-up costs are minimal. Parents involved in the program have pledged over $47,000 to cover the startup costs. Therefore, what exactly does cutting Spanish Immersion save the district, and why is the district unwilling to work with the parent group to come to a mutually beneficial solution?
