To the editor:
I moved to Amesbury with my daughter in 2000. It turned out to be one of the best choices I have ever made. I love our city: the people, the downtown, the open spaces and all of the wonderful teachers at the schools.
But the downward spiral in school funding has to stop! Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that the high school foreign language program would be cut to the point that it doesn’t even offer enough classes to prepare students for most competitive colleges.
One of the things I love best about this city is the involvement of its residents. Together we can make our voices heard. Please, take a moment to tell our elected officials that they must find a way to fully fund foreign language at the high school.
