BATON ROUGE – Today, Governor Bobby Jindal issued the following statement regarding the court ruling on Act 1.
Governor Jindal said, “We believe it is Constitutional and we are going to appeal to the Supreme Court. This was the same decision the judge made last time, and we appealed it. The Supreme Court sent it back and asked him to reconsider. He issued the same decision. We will appeal to the Supreme Court again. The law will continue to be in effect.
“These reforms are constitutional and will help improve Louisiana schools for children and families across the state. The law rewards effective teachers for their hard work and ensures that we have a great teacher in the classroom so that our children have the opportunity succeed."
