LFT President Steve Monaghan outlines problems in Governor Jindal's Education plan
Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — Louisiana Federation of Teachers President, Steve Monaghan spoke to the Press Club of Baton Rouge today.
The topic, Governor Jindal's new Education plan, and ways that he thinks it can be greatly improved.
Monaghan says the plan released by Jindal last week is misleading.
He says Jindal blames teachers for the quality of Education.
Monaghan says teachers say they want the Governor to stop trying to bring politics into Education.
"To teachers, it's wait a minute, why concentrate or put in the public's mind that seed, why not speak truly of your appreciation and have the speech follow that stream," said Monaghan.
