Language Advocacy Day Recap 0 T. Beeman I was in Washington, D.C. last week and met with some staffers on Capitol Hill.  You may have heard about what happened as I know there were people from AATSP there.  Here's a quick recap of what happened.  In November a new America's Language Caucus was formed in the House to ensure that language programs are monitored and funded.  Advocates are asking members of the house to join this caucus.  Last year the World Language Advancement and Readiness Act was passed but now it needs to be funded.  The key to that program is there must be ROTC or some kind of military program to receive the $15M grant money each year for 3 years with the caveat being that 75% of the funds must go toward developing and sustaining programs of languages that are critical to national defense (we don't know what they are as that list is classified).  Last year the BEST Act to help with creating/sustaining state seals of biliteracy was introduced.  We're still asking the House to support it and the Senate to co-sponsor a companion bill that is planned to be introduced last week.  The last ask was the World Language Teacher Student Debt Reduction Act.  It proposes increasing the debt forgiveness cap from $5,000 to $17,500 so language teachers are on par with STEM and SPED because there is a teacher shortage and we are the content area with the oldest population of teachers and are going to be retiring in waves soon.

Let Your Voice Be Heard! 1 T. Beeman Thank you, Tom, for submitting this valuable information. Some states, like California, are progressing nicely with adoption of the new framework in language teaching. Let’s do our share as professionals to become informed in order to advocate in this initiative.
