TESOL Supports the English Learning and Innovation Act

by Cydny Black | 07/11/2014
TESOL International Association sent a letter of support to Rep. Joe Garcia (D-FL) for the English Learning and Innovation Act, a bill he is planning to introduce shortly in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The bill, sponsored by Rep. Joe Garcia (D-FL), would create new federal funding streams to spark innovation in approaches to language instruction and to equip districts with the resources to handle the influx of English language learners. Rep.Garcia's legislation would be a companion bill to a similar proposal sponsored by Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) in the U.S. Senate.
