John White Joins James Stanley on KEEL Morning News [AUDIO]

John White, LA Superintendent Of Education

Louisiana’s top education board is considering accountability standards for the private schools that will get taxpayer-subsidized students through the voucher program.  Superintendent of Education John White proposed the standards.  The Board of Elementary and Secondary Education votes today on whether to support them or not.  As proposed, schools in the voucher program that hit certain enrollment standards, estimated to be about one in four voucher schools this year, will get performance scores and face penalties if their students are deemed to be failing.  All voucher students in third through 11th grades will take the same standardized tests as public school students.  The scoring and penalties will apply to private schools with more than 10 voucher students per grade or more than 40 voucher students in all tested grades. 

Superintendent White joined James Stanley this morning on KEEL morning news to talk about the vouchers program and other hot topics.  Hear that interview by using the player below.
