Local schools to start teaching Chinese
Placeholder Image
School children in Warren County may soon be speaking Chinese after the School Board voted to accept an offer by the Chinese government to teach the language here at little cost to taxpayers.“They will fund two teachers for Warren County and our costs will be roughly $9,500 a year,” said School Board chairman Bill Zechman in presenting the idea to the full board. “I don’t know of anywhere else where you can get a deal like that.”The idea came after Director of Schools Bobby Cox was contacted by MTSU which has a Mandarin Chinese curriculum in its foreign language department. During the call, it was asked if Warren County would be interested in having Mandarin Chinese taught in its schools.
