Janesville School District Superintendent Karen Schulte wants to forge international alliances that don't just include Chinese schools, educators and students but also expands those in other countries that already include Argentina, Thailand, Spain, France and Germany.

We've heard criticisms from residents that the outreach to China is a waste of time and money and that administrators are losing the focus on what should be their top priority--strengthening learning among local students in basics such as math and reading.

Are these concerns fair and reasonable? How do Schulte and her administrative staff respond to these criticisms?

We'll offer some answers and share our perspectives in our editorial Saturday.
