Like lots of families, they are waiting and wondering.

“I have given it lots of thoughts, lots of prayers,” Christin Kaiser said.

 In a worst case scenario, she said, home schooling for the Jefferson Parish student might be the only answer.

“I honestly cannot put her in our district school,” she said. “Our district school is failing.”

The case stems from a 2014 lawsuit by the Louisiana Association of Educators and others.
