Board of Education: Add-On Endorsement

Virginia is a national leader in having its students graduate with a solid foundation of important economic concepts and useful personal financial skills.  These are essential life skills regardless of future vocation.  We applaud the Department of Education for pursuing an add-on endorsement to teach personal finance and economics at the high school level and we agree that it is important to do so.
