Educators, Organizations, and School Districts Called on to Lead the Creation of High-Quality Educational Options for Louisiana Families
BATON ROUGE, La.— The Department of Education today released Louisiana’s Call to Action, an invitation for educators, non-profit organizations, and Louisiana school districts to propose educational solutions with the goal of ensuring that every student in Louisiana has access to a school that will prepare them for success after high school. While the state has fewer failing schools and more A and B schools than ever before, much work remains; success varies from district to district and from region to region. Options are limited for many students. Two out of every nine students in Louisiana currently attends schools with letter grades of D or F. To address this challenge, the Call to Action will provide the opportunities and support that individuals, non-profit organizations, and local school districts need to create new high-quality options for Louisiana’s students.
