Dear World Language Advocates,
Louisiana Senate Bill 191 would change the curriculum requirements which grant eligibility for the Taylor Opportunity Program for Students (TOPS) to allow computer coding to replace world language courses. This bill recently passed through the House Education Committee and is expected to be on the House floor for final passage on Wednesday, May 11th. We must act quickly and work together to educate Louisiana leadership and urge them to oppose this misguided legislation.
The Louisiana Language Teachers Association (LFLTA) is asking all Louisiana language advocates to urge Louisiana State Representatives to oppose SB 191. Through the JNCL-NCLIS Legislative Action Center, you can send a pre-written, editable message with one click. Please also share this alert with fellow teachers, administrators, and community members who understand the value of world language education for all students.
Thank you for taking action today to protect world language education in Louisiana!
