• World Language Content Standards for California Public Schools  (2009)

    "The vision guiding these standards is that every student will develop global competency in order to compete and cooperate in the twenty-first century and beyond. Given today’s interconnected world, it makes good economic sense to encourage all of our students to effectively learn about the different languages and cultures of people with whom they will be interacting. Communicating with our international neighbors promotes peaceful relations, prepares students for employment, and enables our students to compete in the worldwide marketplace. " (From A Message from the State Board of Education and the State Superintendent of Public Instruction)
