Louisiana state superintendent of education
Former superintendent, Louisiana Recovery School District
Excellent preparation for life is not just an issue of individual civil rights; it is an imperative for our nation's future. In an increasingly competitive world, making this promise to every child and every family means that schools and school systems require the capabilities we would expect of any other organization on whose shoulders rest our security and our aspirations. In order to achieve this, adults will have to change and leaders will have to lead that change.
