Louisiana education system

 

What exactly is the purpose of public education? Gov. Bobby Jindal’s sweeping education package has introduced a litany of policy initiatives, slogans, and ideas that have flown over the public’s head faster than it did through the House and Senate education committees. As the general public literally waits for whatever falls in our collective laps, would proponents or opponents please articulate a coherent vision of the purpose of public education.

Louisiana lawmakers are backing plans for low- and moderate-income families to use public money for sending children to private schools. The plan is being driven by Republican Governor Bobby Jindal.
