Bearden High School Chosen for Arabic Language Program
Bearden High School will become the first Knox County School to offer Arabic as a foreign language option.
The school is receiving a one-year grant from the U.S. Department of State to fund a teacher of Modern Standard Arabic for the 2017-2018 school year. The grant is part of the Teachers of Critical Languages Program run through the State Department's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
A teacher from that program will teach the class at Bearden.
It's unclear whether the school will continue offering Arabic as a foreign language option after the 2017-2018 school year.Note: Articles listed under "Middle East studies in the News" provide information on current developments concerning Middle East studies on North American campuses.
