The Globe’s Ellen Ishkanian is reporting that an exchange program between Newton and a school in China will continue, following a conference call this week between
Beijing Jingshan School officials and Newton Superintendent of Schools David Fleishman.

Fleishman said Beijing Jingshan’s principal, Fan Luyan, understands that “this is an isolated incident by one student.”

Hopefully this will be the last of the saga of the unapologetic  Newton North exchange student Henry DeGroot who ruffled some feathers for writing prodemocracy phrases in a Chinese student’s notebook and who either does or doesn’t regret his  actions, depending on which day DeGroot was interviewed.
