ridgeview.jpgSupport the initiative for Punjabi language classes at Ridgeview High School in Bakersfield, CA. 

Following in the foot steps of other Punjabi language programs in high schools such as James Logan High School (Union City, CA), Yuba City High School (Yuba City, CA), Livingston High School (Livingston, CA), and Kerman High School (Kerman, CA), and now Central High School (Fresno,CA), we the undersigned want to see the Punjabi language taught at Ridgeview High School.  Ridgeview High School's campus is nearly 10% students of Punjabi descent and they, along with their non-Punjabi, peers would love to engage, flourish, and develop their skills in the Punjabi language.  Ridgeview High School would be a pathbreaker in the city of Bakersfield, offering "Asian languages" including Punjabi. 

This initiative needs full community support. The school district wants to see that there is in fact Punjabi community support for this initiative and want to see that students would be willing to take this class. Please sign the petition, ask your family to sign it, ask your friends to sign it, ask your co-workers to sign-it, pass it around, spread it on social media - and let's make this a reality. Let's see preserve Punjabi and see it taught in our schools.

    If Spanish, French, and etc. can be taught to children in school, why can’t Punjabi be taught?
