In the news story “Clarion University to cut staff, courses” (Aug. 16 and TribLIVE.com), Debra Erdley reported foreign-language course cuts at Clarion University of Pennsylvania, citing fewer students and less state aid as the reason for the changes.

In a world economy, the loss of French and German courses is a travesty.

Clarion is an institution priced to give middle-class families a chance at a higher education. Foreign languages open us up to global opportunities.

Thank you, Republican Party, for your forward thinking regarding education, the middle class and a global economy. Cuts, sequestration and your anti-education values are paying off.

Less is not more. It's just less!
