Indy Schools To Teach Chinese

ISU College of Education Associate Dean Rebecca Libler says students should learn not only the language but also the culture of the Chinese.

Administrators with the Indianapolis Public Schools hope to implement Chinese language instruction in middle schools next year. The idea was fueled by a recent trip to China, led by a delegation from Indiana State University.

ISU College of Education Associate Dean Rebecca Libler says students should learn not only the language but also the culture of the Chinese. She says that China is moving quickly toward becoming an economic power, and that in the future America will be doing more business with China.

IPS middle school superintendent Jacquelyn Clency says the district won’t be able to implement Chinese courses in the fall, but she hopes to inaugurate the program sometime in 2008.
