Vail Daily letter: Need these teachers

Jane Kort
Vail, CO, Colorado

I just read about your school district’s decision to cut the foreign language classes. Replacing teachers with the computer program is a travesty!

Students need their teachers to communicate with them in a language class. Communication is most important when speaking to someone, not simply writing or reading.

By replacing this excellent teacher, you are taking away from your students not only the opportunity to learn the language but to be mentored by an individual who is obviously invested in the best interests of the students. Please reconsider your priorities.
