Why are the WLWV Immersion classrooms being discussed during a show about budget cuts? Immersion classrooms are cost-neutral after negligible start up costs. In WLWV, parents agreed to cover those costs, created a 501(c)(3), and raised $48,000 in a matter of days. Instead of being about the budget, the slashing of immersion has NOTHING to do with costs and EVERYTHING to do with the superintendent's agenda. Roger Woehl clearly controls that School Board; there are no checks and balances in WLWV. Woehl has admitted he's had it out for Immersion. Board members Keith Steele and Jeff Halin have admitted they, too, had problems with the Adminstration's cost figures re: Immersion. What they said last night in a Board meeting is that the Immersion classrooms have a "perception problem" in WLWV. We are left to believe that that refers to the awful racism that has reared its ugly head in WLWV around this issue , and/or about Superintendent Roger Woehl's agenda and directives (one and the same)?????
