Senator Walsworth wins as LAPCS Recognizes Charter Champions at 7th Annual Conference.

The Louisiana Association of Public Charter Schools (LAPCS) 7th Annual Conference - 7th Inning Stretch: Charters. Choice. Change. – recognized leaders in the state’s growing charter movement.
“Every year, our conference aims to bring together the best and brightest educators Louisiana has to offer. We learn from each other. We recognize our successes and our challenges individually and as a whole. We come together to strengthen our areas of weakness, and share working knowledge of best practices,” said LAPCS Director Caroline Roemer Shirley.
“This year, we were able to celebrate the announcement of the Department of Education’s School Performance Scores during our conference. As a movement, we stand by three key principles that ultimately lend to greater achievement in our schools: choice, autonomy and accountability. To empower parents with choices as it relates to their children’s education. To give principals the freedom they need to make the decisions that are best for their teachers and students. To hold our educational professionals to the highest academic and financial benchmarks in order to strive ever closer to the goal of a world class education for every public school student In a Louisiana classroom.
“Thus LAPCS recognized some of the outstanding leaders in public education who are meeting the challenge to improve education in our state by volunteering their time to lead, by creating school cultures that emphasize excellence, courage and sharing best practices as well as those that stand up publicly to support policies that propel our state further in educational improvements and reforms.”

Tammy GaedeThank you! Stop common core if you care about education of kids! Look at that entire program! It's brainwashing! What about voter fraud already committed? What are you doing about that? And... Question.... What have you done about the 22 terrorist camps in America that the FBI and CIA tried to get Obama to destroy? While we are on that subject... Did you all forget the US constitution forbids any foreign law or foreign entity from having any power or say in America? Stop it immediately while you still can! If you don't stop sharia law women won't have to worry about bodies they will do whatever they want to us at that point! Rip out the clitoris. Rape women. Stone them. Mame them. Kill them. Kidnap and sell them as sex slaves. Don't you think you should come up with a law to stop it all before it happens?!!!! If you don't the blood of all American females is on your hands!5 days ago
