STATEMENT FROM SUPERINTENDENT JOHN WHITE REGARDING 19TH JUDICIAL DISTRICT COURT RULING ON ACT 1

Jan 08, 2014

BATON ROUGE, La. - State Superintendent of Education John White issued a statement today concerning the 19th Judicial District Court ruling on Act 1:

"Act 1 empowers educators to make decisions not based on politics but based on merit. Last year the Supreme Court advised Judge Caldwell to reconsider his original determination that the law's format is unconstitutional. As he arrived at the same conclusion as before, we will again appeal to the Supreme Court. We must allow educators to make decisions based on merit over politics."
