Learn what happened in this legislative session. Find out how public education fared this year, and what the LFT has planned for the year to come.
The Louisiana Federation of Teachers invited you to participate in a Telephone Townhall on Wednesday, June 12 from 1:00 P.M. until 2:00 P.M.
The one-hour briefing included updates from key LFT leaders on the legislative session that wrapped up June 6. We talked about how public education fared in the legislative session, the status of our challenges to Gov. Jindal’s ill-conceived education “reform” effort, and how we intend to keep fighting for public schools.
The Telephone Townhall took place as Federation activists from around Louisiana gathered in Baton Rouge for the union’s annual Summer Leadership Institute.
We broadcast interactive live coverage of the event through Facebook and UStream. You asked questions of our panelists through e-mail, text, and Twitter.
