Two High Point Regional High School students have started a petition to save the school's German language program. According to the New Jersey Herald, the German program is just one of several cuts being made after the school's state aid was reduced by $478,000 for the upcoming school year.
Nick Southard and Joe Cimaglia reportedly started the petition because they're worried that losing the program could negatively affect their chances of getting into a good college. Many colleges require a minimum of three years of consecutive study in one language and both students are only in their second year of studying German.
Other programs and clubs that are set to be cut include the Key Club, Pass It Along, Students Against Violence Everywhere, and Students Against Being Bullied.
