That’s definitely true, but what exactly does that look like in the day-to-day lives of people in an organization? Tsedal B. Neeley published an article in the journal Organization Science titled “Language Matters: Status Loss and Achieved Status Distinctions in Global Organizations”.

The Finding Funding Checklist for Language Learning

Although we’ve seen a few years of economic growth and rising property values, education funding from state and federal sources continues to lag behind. Part of this is because of expired stimulus funding, while another part is an unwillingness to increase spending.
