LFT Urges Jindal To Seek Classroom Leadership Experience When Replacing Pastornek
Written by 

 

The Louisiana Federation of Teachers President Steve Monaghan has issued this statement regarding the upcoming announcement by Superintendent of Education Paul Pastorek that he will leave the Department.

“The Louisiana Federation of Teachers wishes Superintendent of Education Paul Pastorek well as he returns to the private sector. As the search begins for a new superintendent, we call upon Gov. Bobby Jindal to use carefully this opportunity for a fresh start.


It should not be difficult to find qualified individuals for the job. Our concern is with the policies that a new superintendent will champion. We are hopeful that the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education and the governor will search for a superintendent with proven experience as a classroom leader, and who is willing to listen to the concerns of teachers.

While Mr. Pastorek’s personal style often brought him into conflict with some in the education community, we understand that it is policy, not personality, that counts in the long run.

Governor Jindal now has an opportunity to meet with the stakeholders in public education, including those who have had policy differences with Mr. Pastorek. BESE’s choice for a replacement will speak volumes about the direction they expect to take for public schools and the children whose future depends on the jobs done by the teachers and staff in those schools.”

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Louisiana has endured adverse credit rating changes since edwards midDemocrat Gov. John Bel Edwards assumed office, completing a downgrade trifecta last week.
