Language Advocacy - Video by Kentucky Educational Television

Kentucky Educational Television (KET) broadcast Learning World Languages to Prepare for College and Careers on April 19, 2011. Host Bill Goodman and guests explore the importance of world language study in the global society, where fluency in other languages and familiarity with other cultures are prerequisites for success. In the face of this reality, Kentucky high schools and colleges are turning to performance-based assessments and real-world experiences to help students acquire life-long foreign language skills. Guests are: Dr. Jacqueline Van Houten (Kentucky Dept. of Education), Randy Barrette (Minifee County Public Schools), Alicia Vinson (Fayette County Public Schools) and Dr. John Millay (Cloverport Independent Schools). Produced by KET. You can watch the archived program by visiting KET's section Education Matters - April at
