Barbara Jordan Culinary Arts Program
I am creating this petition for the benefit of Barbara Jordan Culinary Arts students. This petition will benefit us students because we would get the education of "common topics covered in culinary schools include baking, catering, desserts, handling and choosing fresh meats and vegetables, ethnic cuisines, and restaurant management. A graduate of a cooking school is expected to be able to perform in a professional kitchen successfully, and many cooking schools offer chef placement services to assist their graduates." (as said on Barbara Jordan High School for Careers website- http://www.houstonisd.org/Page/59989). We are one of Houston Independent School District's best culinary arts programs. The culinary art students disagree on HISD trying to shutdown this program. We disagree because how are we going to get into college without at least the basics of culinary arts? Doesn't every single district or school want there students to graduate and go to college successfully and ready with all knowledge given from that school or district?
