Foundation director Jacques Rodrigue spoke Friday in Bossier City as part of a TEDx event. Currently, seven schools in Louisiana are in the network. Rodrigue said his foundation couldn’t wait for the state to embrace this educational model. So his father, the artist known for the famous Blue Dog paintings, George Rodrigue, took the lead.
