Non fumus est sine igne.
Doctors Charter School, due to budget concerns, has recommended scaling back its Latin program. The proposal, made by the administration to the school board on February 19th, was to cut the classroom-based program in favor of a virtual school alternative.
The students are not supportive of the measure.
Currently, students at DCS are organizing to voice their displeasure over the idea of dropping Latin in favor of moving it to an online format. The students cite several reasons for keeping Latin at DCS, for example the benefits Latin bestows for acquiring and expanding vocabulary as well as helping to “beef” up applications for college, aside from the fact that they actually enjoy the course.
The next board meeting is March 19th and the students are expected to appear en masse to show their support for keeping Latin at DCS.
