ACTFL just sent us members an “urgently needed help” message re FLAP. FL funding is on the chopping block. Yes, by all means, contact your congressman, but if he’s a Republican, you’re out of luck. The only way a Republican will support fl education is if it can be shown it helps us kill foreign enemies and he won’t support federal funding in any case. That’s today’s GOP.
The other thing we can do is to make sure that someone who takes 2-3-4 years of Spanish in school comes out able to say something more than Donde esta taco bell? From what I see, that’s not happening. But then maybe I’m wrong. Show me.
