Governor Jindal Statement on Act 1

BATON ROUGE – Governor Jindal issued the following statement today regarding the Louisiana Association of Educators' press conference on Act 1:

"We're always willing to work with stakeholders to improve education in Louisiana. We continue to work with teachers, superintendents, principals and school board members to make sure we have a great teacher in every classroom. Act I is overwhelmingly supported by the public and it is instrumental in improving education for our kids.

"We believe the judgment from last week's case will be set aside because it was rendered without regard to the legal requirements for challenging the constitutionality of a law. The procedures contained in Act 1 fully comply with state and federal due process, which will be proven when the case is properly retried or, ultimately, on appeal. These reforms are constitutional and will continue improving Louisiana schools for children and families across our state."
