Education, education, education

My column today considers education and its constant abuse in the state's political environment. The column concludes: "It's clear no Louisiana official can win or keep an elected office without promising to make education a priority. And that's important. But it's time people start demanding behavior reflecting those promises. The question is whether when elections next roll around voters will remember how education is somehow just never quite important enough to be at the top of the list." It's not an exaggeration to say education is the key to Louisiana's future. Get education right and everything else will fall into place.
