For years, only two foreign languages have been obtainable at the Corning-Painted Post School District, while in other districts in New York, as many as four may be offered. This is much to the dissent of the student populace.
Because of this, many of the students, only being able to choose French and Spanish, never get the chance to take a language they want so they quickly lose interest in it all together and many drop out after taking the Proficiency Exam that is required by New York State.
If a student were offered a language they would like, instead of being required to pick between two they do not like at all, they are more likely to stay in the class and therefore would have a higher chance of staying in the class and would lead to better understand among the younger generation of the United States and the world.
We, the undersigned, call on the Corning-Painted Post School District Board to allow students a wider variety of foreign languages. Not just for the students who attend West High School and East High School, but also for those who attend Northside Blodgett Middle School, and Corning Free Academy.
Together, we may help the children of today make a better world for the children of tomorrow. We do this in the best interest of the students and our country.
