Cut, after all

Wednesday, January 14th, 2009

Washington Post reports here: “The College Board is planning to cut its Advanced Placement Italian program in the 2009-10 academic year, despite a yearlong effort by Italian American organizations to save the underfunded course.”

Italian language advocates and Italian-American groups are not happy. “We are deeply disappointed that the Advanced Placement Program of The College Board, commonly known as AP Italian, will be suspended following the 2008-2009 academic year.”
