Bobby Jindal wants just one thing from Louisiana’s Governor-elect

During the first meeting between Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and Governor-elect John Bel Edwards, Jindal made a point to discuss the Louisiana Scholarship Program with his successor.

“I made a personal request to John Bel and he agreed to it right away,” Jindal told the Times-Picayune/

“I just asked before they made any decisions that they meet with the children and parents who have been involved in that program and hear from them.”

More than 7,100 students participate in the statewide school choice scholarship program that gives parents the option to remove their children from a failing school and enroll them in a new school of their choice.

Let’s hope the new governor will meet with children like the first graders at St. Benedict the Moor School in New Orleans. We accompanied them this week on a service learning project visit to the Louisiana SPCA.

St. Benedict the Moor School is a high-performing Louisiana Scholarship Program school serving pre-K through 4th grade students.
