Louisiana could certainly use help. The NAEP results don’t show much for all the reforminess John White has been casting down there.
Yes, I have help for Louisiana. They should review the literature on education for the past fifty years and heed it. We know what contributes to a high quality education for a child and these conditions can be made available to all children. Start with pre-natal care, infant monitoring and high-quality preschool. Just those three things will make a huge difference to children who now suffer the terrible effects of poverty.
(Clarification: Poverty or affluence do not directly affect education but the EFFECTS of poverty and affluence do.)
