Support Add-On Endorsement

The economic and personal finance education of our students is particularly important.  I am glad that there is a required economics course for all Virginia high school students.  However, we must ensure that the teachers are properly trained in the subject matter and licensed to teach the courses.  I encourage you to support the Add-On Endorsement for this program.
