Dear NABE members:
The new version of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act will be voted on this week in the House of Representatives. Take action to preserve language education in our K-12 schools. The new version eliminates FLAP.
The Foreign Language Assistance Program, reauthorized under the Foreign Language Assistance Act of 2001 (P. L. 107-110, title V, 501), has provided Local Education Agencies — and State Education Agencies, competitive funding for more than 20 years, allowing districts and states to improve their foreign language curricula and expand foreign language offerings to our students.
Write to your representative to urge that FLAP be preserved.
to see sample letter.
