Recent changes to public school policies have drastically changed the landscape of the K -12 public education system in Louisiana. In order to bring these issues to light, leaders of the Louisiana Association of Educators(LAE) will host a series of education forums across the state. These forums will consist of open, honest discussions between a panel of local education stakeholders -- teachers, parents, school administrations, community leaders, and legislative members -- with participants focusing on the most pressing issues currently impacting our public schools. Every community member is encouraged to participate in this very important discussion.
