^ Too lazy to find the original article.
But basically the gist is there is huge controversy this upcoming school semester because of this all Arabic public school. Recently it was made into a dual language school (like 60 others in the city) and its still facing opposition saying itll be an American training ground for terrorists and extremists. Yeah... wtf. But aside from that, this school will not be focused on teaching english to young arabic students. What do you think of that. Is it anti-American to NOT teach them (now mostly) in arabic alone or should we try to Americanize the students and make English a top priority while respecting and teaching them about their Arabic heritage? I only bring this up here because another main issue is its a public school.
BTW theres also an all Chinese public school opening this year as well, the number of applications has been so high and the public opinion so positive that they're thinking of limiting the number of students and opening another school just like it.
