H.422 An Act to establish the state seal of biliteracy

Type:  Education 

This bill aims to produce a biliterate, multicultural workforce and promote long term economic development in Massachusetts by recognizing high school graduates who attain functional proficiency in English and at least one other language. Creating a State Seal of Biliteracy will identify a clear goal for students to aim for in their foreign language studies and signify to universities and international businesses that our students have attained important 21st century skills (this is a new bill).
