TESOL Joins AZTESOL in Letter Supporting Foreign Language as a College-and Career-Readiness Indicator

by David Cutler | 02/13/2017
TESOL International Association recently ​joined Arizona TESOL (AZTESOL) in a letter addressed to the Arizona State Board of Education, supporting new college-and career-readiness ​indicators ​that would require students to ​have two-years of foreign language instruction. Citing the numerous cognitive benefits of speaking a second language, both TESOL and AZTESOL ​advised the A-F School Accountability Ad Hoc Advisory Committee to include foreign or second language high school course work, or demonstrated proficiency, as an indicator of college-and career-readiness.
