The Louisiana Association of Educators released its legislative report card this week.
Most Acadiana lawmakers scored an A or a B. LAE's spokesman Shane Riddle says they grade based on the lawmakers' agreement with LAE's policies.
Whoever agrees with them gets the higher grade.
We caught up with Rep. Nancy Landry, one of two local representatives who received a failing grade.
She says she votes and legislates based on her experience as a parent, not as someone beholden to the teacher's union.
LAE said Landry's grade was largely based on her support of Gov. Bobby Jindal's school reform plan.
Grades for all Acadiana representatives:
Taylor F. Barras - B-
Stuart J. Bishop - F
Nancy Landry - F
Terry C. Landry, Sr. - A+
Jack Montoucet - A+
Stephen J. Ortego - A+
Vincent J. Pierre - A+
Joel C. Robideaux - C-
And in the Senate:
Senator Elbert L. Guillory - C+
Senator Jonathan "J.P." Perry - A
Senator Page Cortez - B
Senator Fred H. Mills, Jr. - A
