LDOE does not follow public records law (Letter from BESE Rep. Lottie Bebee)

October 30, 2014

Letter to the Editor– from Lottie P. Beebe, Ed. D., BESE Representative for District 3 Often I receive complaints from parents and citizens stating that the Louisiana Department of Education (LDOE) is not following the Public Records Act of Louisiana. The law requires government agencies to provide access to public records as requested by citizens […]

Anti-Common Core Forums and Town Halls Feed John White a Healthy Helping of Crow

October 28, 2014

2

Despite what John White claimed a few weeks ago in the American Press newspaper, a local paper serving the Lake Charles area, opposition to Common Core and Eureka is not confined to a few isolated communities that only appear numerous because they take photographs from small rooms.

The Louisiana Eureka Rebellion

October 8, 2014

Across the state parents and teachers are confronting their school boards and curriculum leaders with the same universal complaint. Eureka Math sucks. (That seems to be a nearly universally agreed upon fact by most parents not paid by LDOE or financially biased Common Core proponents.) Now however, complaints have shifted from the blindly adopted Common […]

Local School Board Races

October 1, 2014

0

I just realized I’ve been neglecting what I have been telling others to do, get involved in local school board races. I’m not a walking sack of money, like Lane Grigsby, but I can do my part to make candidates that actually support public schools and democracy more visible to voters. (Grigsby wants candidates that […]
