Support the Seal of Biliteracy

Proficiency in foreign languages is a critical need to ensure that Virginians maintain a competitive edge throughout the rest of the world. The Seal of Biliteracy on high school diplomas will motivate student achievement and bolster the value of language learning among our high school population. This in turn will strengthen the quality of our programs and make them even more effective preparing the next generation of Virginians to be successful on a global scale. I am in full support of adding this endorsement to our high school diplomas.
