At Monday’s Board of Education Meeting an administrative recommendation to move forward with planning for a dual language district middle school program at Sennett was approved by a vote of 7-0 and the request for a memo of understanding with Nuestro Mundo Inc in order to qualify a charter dual language immersion middle school program for planning grants was not acted on. The lack of action was an expression of non support for the charter, as the comments by the Board members made clear.
I applaud the Board for their action and inaction.
The video of the meeting can be found here.
Despite a large group of people testifying and an editorial on the topic in the Wisconsin State Journal (my earlier comments on that editorial here). I have seen no news coverage of this decision. Strange and not good.
