Two years ago, the Wellesley School Committee rejected a contribution of almost $400,000 from parents seeking to preserve a Spanish language program. The committee rebuffed the spontaneous fundraising effort, saying they didn’t want affluent parents to be in a position of controlling the curricula.
But earlier this week, the School Committee approved a $9,000 contribution to fix up the teachers lounge at Wellesley High School.
School Superintendent Matthew King said the Wellesley High School Parent-Teacher Organization asked him for ideas on projects they might fund at the school, and he pointed out that the teachers’ dining lounge was “shabby.”
