For four decades, Booker T. has set a high standard in foreign language studies by offering eight different world languages. Budget cuts are quickly diminishing this extraordinary course work. Many language classes have restricted enrollment and Latin classes have been completely eliminated for 2016-2017.
The initial schedule for 2016-2017 did not include Chinese 1 as an option. The elimination of Chinese 1 would effectively result in the elimination of Chinese as a course of study for future Hornets. Restoring the Chinese teacher to a full time position through Investing in Our Teachers provides Chinese 1 courses for 85 students per year. Your support allows both new and advanced students to study this important language. Your investment will ensure that Tulsans continue to be prepared to compete globally.
