River Hill High School Chinese AP IV class cancelled

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.


I love you in Chinese


“The Dream” continues shining

When I first got to know Dr. Martin Luther King and his great speech more than 20 years ago far far away, I was deeply moved:

       I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

    I have a dream today!

It has been more than fifty years and now there is a day in the school calendar to honor his legacy. How does the same dream move forward and keep shining for everybody? I believe everybody in the community should think of it and find a workable solution.

Family, education, job and culture are the basics. Everything starts from family. Everyone should try his/her own share of effort. Together, the dream will continue shining.
