Keep German in Council Rock
The Council Rock School District is threatening to remove German as one of the languages offered to students.
The district wants to stop offering a language that gives students valuable opportunities to learn the language while participating in many German cultural events.
This is the only language that has an exchange program every year (for over thirty years). There are endless trips, competitions, and cultural experiences that students who study the language or who know the language can be a part of.
If the school district takes away this language they are also taking away these opportunities from their students.
There are many students who graduated from Council Rock's German program who went on to find employment in which they use this language everyday. Taking away this language will not only affect the students throughout middle school and high school, but also limit future employment opportunities. Knowledge of the German language is a great asset for anyone and it will put CR students a step ahead of others when pursuing educational and employment opportunities.
You can help to ensure that CR students have the opportunity in the future to continue to learn this language and benefit from all that it has to offer by signing this petition.
