Unbelievable, shortsighted, and tragic. The SRC passed a budget without full day kindergarten.
I plunked down a buck for today’s Inquirer and got treated to an upset stomach.
It’s great that the district has a school that inspires parents, but clearly there is something wrong with a system that necessitates parents camping out overnight in single digit temperatures.
One of the realities of a language immersion program is that everyone is starting at the same level. Maybe my kid can’t read but somebody else’s kid can. Guess what? When the class starts and the teacher is speaking only Spanish, every kid is lost. Every kid is starting from scratch. So by definition, the students are all at the same level, at least for vast chunks of the curriculum.
For parents and kids starting kindergarten soon. Sorry for posting the broken video embed before…
