PHOENIX – Parents of students enrolled in a special ‘Mandarin Immersion Program’ offered by the Cave Creek Unified School District are not happy, as the program is expected to get cut by the district due to budgetary reasons.

There are three different World Language Programs in the district, but only Mandarin Chinese is being cut. Parents are upset because they say they are not getting any transparency from the district’s new superintendent, Dr. Cort Monroe, who started his role earlier in 2021.
