Due to recent budget cuts, many teachers from Groton Central School will be losing their jobs. Among these teachers is the Spanish teacher, who will not be being replaced. This means that there will be no Spanish program for those of us who want to take Spanish as a foreign language in high school. Those of us who are currently taking Spanish will be forced to take either a Business class or to start fresh in French classes. Most of us have already taken a few years of Spanish and don't plan on dropping that class because of the credits that we will earn. How are we supposed to get enough credits if we have to start over from scratch and only have two/three years left to earn them There are some colleges that require a certain number of years of a foreign language in order to apply there, but how are we going to be accepted if we don't have the appropriate experience. According to firstname.lastname@example.org (http://www.krysstal.com/spoken.html), Spanish is the fourth most spoken language in the world, so it would seem appropriate that we should be offered that language in school. By signing this, you are saying that you would like to see the Spanish program in Groton High School stay to teach those who wish to stay and learn.
