Jindal's Education Reform Is Louisiana Politics As Usual
Written by 

louisiana-politics Jindal's privatization push has extended to nearly every element of state government. Anything public is a ripe target for Jindali and his henchmen to turn over to his cronies to make a buck or three. That's how the game works:

Win election by promoting wedge issues and moral superiority
Wrap every proposal around plans to divest the state of public resources, contracting away or outright selling public property to special contractors and friends
Get contributions from said special contractors and friends to build huge warchest and win re-election easily.


And that's a wrap. Some folks aren't ready to let this three-step work so easily:

One of the most vocal critics of Gov. Bobby Jindal's education proposals, the Louisiana Association of Educators, offered its suggestions Friday on how to improve teacher quality and boost performance at failing schools, saying Jindal's ideas are flawed and demoralizing to teachers.

The LAE offered a counter-proposal that would require $200 million or more in new funding for public schools and preschool programs, give a $500 tax credit to teachers for school supplies and strip standardized testing as the main criteria for evaluating teacher performance.

quin hillyer health 5Have the conservative Freedom Caucus and advocacy organizations such as Freedom Works and Heritage Action "screwed the American people"?

That's the feeling expressed by at least one long-time conservative Republican, who, as millions of others were outraged by the destruction of the Obamacare "repeal" and replacement, on Friday.

comey sitThe GOP will likely claim that the bogus “ Assisted suicide counseling” will still be covered since Obamacare remains the law of the land. That’s good news for GOP legislators who planned on voting “yes” on its repeal. The rich, also, should be happy the old law remains because they have wounds that need tending after the mega tax breaks for them that were inserted in Trumpcare went the way of leeching. The failure to repeal, of course, is the Democrats fault. Trump said so, but he has reason to be happy, too. The health care debacle managed, if just for an hour, or two, to deflect attention away from Russia.
