Please Keep Foundations of Education Language
 

This message is to respectfully request the State Board keep the foundations of education language in the regulations governing education programs in the Commonwealth.  Foundations of education is a unique and vital field of study in graduate programs across the nation.  In addition, the dedicated faculty who teach these courses are uniquely trained in the field and are passionate about the course material and its impact in the development of well-rounded, effective, and compassionate teachers.   As the term implies, this course work provides the foundation for everything meaningful that follows and allows for a deeper appreciation and understanding of the vital role education plays in our society.  Please keep the foundations of education language.  Thank you.
