LFT announces endorsements, favorable candidates and constitutional amendment recommendations
(Baton Rouge – September 30, 2015) This fall’s elections will mark a watershed in Louisiana history. Eight long years of misrule by the Jindal administration make it crucial that supporters of public education vote for candidates who respect our teachers, schools and students.
For the past eight years, John Bel Edwards has been steadfast in his support for public education. Even when Gov. Jindal’s ratings were above 60%, John Bel was unafraid to say that the Jindal plan was bad for Louisiana. He has been a voice of reason standing against those who led the state to the brink of disaster.
JFT returned to the bargaining table and an Agreement was reached!
This agreement marks the return of teacher voice in educational decisions and a culture of collaboration.
