A speech by Louisiana Superintendent of Education John White before the Baton Rouge Rotary Club on November 6, 2019. He discusses: the state’s unified system for early childhood education; their work in aligning curriculum standards with standardized tests so that teachers are not teaching to the test; the full-year residency requirement in the classroom for teacher training; revitalizing career and technical education; their focus on helping low income youth; and the improvements made by the East Baton Rouge Parish Public School System. He also answers questions from the audience.
