Calling all Mandarin charter schools
At least two new Mandarin charter schools are set to open in the 2017-2018 school year, PUC International Preparatory Academy in the Los Angeles Unified School District and Wei Yu International Charter school in West San Jose, Calif.
I’ve got 21 existing charter schools on my list of Mandarin immersion programs in the United States and I wonder if there’s any sort of network of Mandarin immersion charters so where best practices and talk about how they go about creating a program.
I realize charters are public schools and therefore function in many ways as all other public schools. But some of the new programs had asked if there was a network or at least an email list for charters.
So I ask – does one exist? And if so, may I use this blog to get the word out about it to others?
