Keep French Immersion at Herndon Elementary

310 Signatures Goal: 1,000

We petition the Principal at Herndon Elementary School, the Fairfax County School Board and the World Languages Offices at Fairfax County Public Schools to keep French Immersion as the only foreign language program at Herndon Elementary School and immediately stop the administration from going forward with plans to convert to a Spanish Immersion program at the school.

    I am going to quote from Language Stars learning centers because their posted facts illustrate perfectly the importance of keeping children's language learning options open:

    "With 120 million speakers worldwide, French is one of the six official languages of the United Nations, one of the three official languages of the European Commission, and is spoken on every continent.

    French is the second most studied language in the world after English. And looking ahead to future career opportunities, 2,800 French companies in the U.S. employ approximately 550,000 Americans. Similarly, U.S. companies employ nearly 650,000 people in France. Among foreign countries doing business in the U.S., France employs the third largest number of Americans."

    Please don't close this "door to the world" for the students at Herndon Elementary.
