EPF add-on endorsement

I support the addition of the proposed add-on endorsement for the teachers of the EPF courses. Raising the knowledge and preparation of our teachers ultimately means greater understanding for Virginia's students. This proposed action has a good balance between raising the bar and having enough teachers. It is my understanding that there is a phase-in period for this endorsement and opportunities for current teachers to obtain the endorsement with a recommendation from their Superintendent.
