(This amendment restores funding for the Virginia Career Vital Information for Education and Work Program (VIEW), an interactive, hands-on career education and planning system for grades K-8, administered through Virginia Tech. This program does not duplicate the Virginia Community College System's Virginia Wizard, which is targeted at grades 7 through community college. In the last five years, the program had close to 400 million website hits and created over 1,000 online and print activities.)
