Just learned that River Hill High School Chinese AP IV class will be cancelled from Fall 2016. The school said this was because the budget cut. I really don’t like they keep using “budget cut”. How about insufficient funding?
The Chinese AP IV is considered as one of the flagship AP classes by the community, which has been enrolling many students with different racial and culture backgrounds. Other AP language classes have not been cancelled with lower participation rate, low retaining rate comparing with Chinese AP class. I did not understand. The community and teachers were not consulted at all before the announcement.
