Education funding ruling is groundbreaking, attorney says
Member Jay O’Brien (Baton Rouge) discussed the Louisiana Supreme Court recent decision on an appellate court’s reversal ruling with the Louisiana Record. The ruling found Senate Concurrent Resolution 55, which apportions the Minimum Foundation Program (MFP) subsidy to New Type 2 charter schools, unconstitutional.
O’Brien provided insight on the far-reaching impact of the decision. “This is Louisiana, and we are and have been for a long time have been on the cutting edge of education reform,” O’Brien said, adding the state was a pioneer in standardized testing for advanced placement. “What we are trying to do is come up with innovative ways to educate all of our children.”
