Governor Jindal: “I think it is so important to the future of our state that we provide a great education to every student. We live in an aspirational society where we want every child to be able to do better than their parents.
And the reality is for too long, for too long, we have had too many kids in Louisiana and New Orleans trapped in failing schools.
These results show that every child is capable of learning.
This shows that whether these kids are the first in their families to go beyond high school, whether these kids are the first in their families to get a great education, or whether they are the second or third generation to do so, every child is capable of learning.
But let’s not forget this is really about each and every child getting a great education so they can get a great paying job, they can have a great quality of life. That's great for these kids, it's great for New Orleans and it’s great for Louisiana.
I can't think of a more important goal than to making sure that every child gets a great education so they can pursue their dreams and achieve their potential right here in Louisiana.”
