Advocacy Topics

World languages and computer coding

Several states have proposed changes to their high school graduation and university admissions requirements that would allow students to count technical or trade courses (e.g. computer programming) towards second/world language requirements. ACTFL has published position papers on the topic:

AAUSC maintains a page of resources on the topic as well (to come).
