I support the Add-On Endorsement for EPF Educators

I support the add-on endorsement for Economics and Personal Finance teachers in Virginia.  It is great that Virginia has a strong SOL in EPF as it is critically important that all children are educated on the foundational principles of a market economy and key concepts of personal finance such as the time value of money and opportunity costs as they relate to spending, saving and personal debt.  These topics should be taught by a engaging qualified teacher.
