Louisiana public education is plagued with problems. Students aren't graduating from high school, students who cant read are being asked to write book reports, teachers either don't care or are underpaid — you get the picture.
The state's national education rank is pitiful: The National Center for Education Statistics ranks Louisiana 49th out of 50.
So how can it be fixed? Is there anything we can do to reverse this trend? There is. But it will take some dramatic steps to get there.
