Teachers’ union criticizes Hosanna Christian Academy

The questions are out of bounds because the school collected $1.4 million in state aid for voucher students during the 2012-13 school year, Steve Monaghan, president of the Louisiana Federation of Teachers, said in an interview.

Josh LeSage, headmaster at the school, said later that Hosanna is well within its legal rights in what questions it asks job applicants. “We are not breaking any laws,” LeSage said in an interview.
