Perhaps an English immersion charter school would be much more beneficial to the community at large. Open to students in The Bell Haven area of the city and perhaps allowing students from EPA and northeast Menlo. As you know English is the main language of the nation.

If parents want to immerse their kids in another language then they should find a private school where they can pay and not take our tax dollars and other funds away from the district.
