Congresswoman Titus Co-Sponsors Teaching Geography is Fundamental Act!

posted Mar 21, 2013, 12:07 PM by Herb Thompson
The teachers and leadership of the Geographic Alliance In Nevada would like to thank Congresswoman Dina Titus for her support of Geographic Education through her co-sponsorship of the Teaching Geography is Fundamental Act! H.R. 822 now has twenty-five bipartisan co-sponsors in the House and its companion bill S. 370 has sixteen bipartisan co-sponsors in the Senate. This important legislation would provide federal funds for the only core subject historically without them. We thank the congresswoman for her leadership and for being a champion of geo-literacy. She understands that only geographically literate citizens will have the skills and perspectives to balance the economic, environmental, political, and social challenges facing Nevadan's and all American's in the 21st century.
