The Chosunilbo May 19, 2011
A public high school in California will start Korean classes in the upcoming fall semester.
Dougherty Valley High School, located in the eastern part of the state, has 200 students of Korean descent, which is 10 percent of the entire student body.
A group of Korean parents whose children attend the school petitioned for the language class and held various events to introduce Korean food and culture.
The president of the parents’ association said it is also looking into starting taekwondo and Korea clubs at the school.
