The Illinois Senate Debates SB 1221 - the Illinois Seal of Biliteracy

SB1221 is currently under study in the Education Committee of the Illinois Senate. SB 1221, sponsored by State Senator Iris Martinez, would establish a process whereby high school students who are biliterate in English and a second language would receive official recognition at graduation. Committee members will meet on Wednesday, March 6, 2013, to determine whether to submit the bill to the entire State Senate. Do you know your State Senator? Give him or her a call to support this important initiative already a reality in the states of California and New York.
