NO to add on endorsement

As a teacher that has been teaching EPF since this was required, there is no need for an extra endorsement! Currently Government and Econ teachers can teach this as well as most CTE teachers.  Due to the current climate in schools I do not wish to give my name as I only have 4 years to go to retirement and fear repercussions.   This will just cost school systems more money, and teachers added stress to receive the new endorsement.  No wonder colleges like UVA support this as this will increase their enrollment.  Vote no on making this endorsement required to teach this class.
