The February Newsletter

 

 
This month kicked off with the annual LFT Winter Conference. Members from Locals all over the state came together for the one-day summit in Baton Rouge.  Presentations mostly focused on the upcoming legislative session: our priorities as an organization and what to expect from the new legislators in the House and Senate.
 
Plus, the MFP Task Force made a decision, we celebrate Public Schools Week, prepare for the legislative session, and more -- read about February at LFT.

Public Schools Week 2020

 

 

 

This Lundi Gras we kick off National Public Schools Week!

Join LFT, AFT and the whole Learning First Alliance to celebrate and honor our nation’s public schools.

Nine out of 10 students in the United States attend public schools, so let’s call attention to the great work being done to give our nation’s children every opportunity to grow and succeed.

The January Newsletter

 

After last year’s contentious elections, January brought our new and old representatives together to begin their work on behalf of the Louisiana voters. Governor Edwards was sworn in at a ceremony on the steps of the Capitol on January 13th. On that same day the House and Senate convened an organizational session.
