Support Add-on Endorsement

I support the Add-On Endorsement and request its approval by the Board of Education.  It is our responsibility to provide tomorrow's Virginians the tools to make prudent financial decisions.  Two main factors lead to this success.  First, access to economics and personal finance as part of their education.  Second, and possibly more important, well-trained teachers who engage students.  Additional, but efficient training, in this domain will result in a more productive and effective educational experience.
