Louisiana bishops support Gov. Jindal’s education plan

    The Louisiana Conference of Catholic Bishops (LCCB), the public policy arm of the seven bishops of Louisiana, is supporting Gov. Bobby Jindal’s plan to expand the Orleans Parish Scholarship Program statewide.
    The LCCB asks voters to contact their state legislators in support of HB 9976 by Rep. Steve Carter (R-Baton Rouge) and SB 597 by Sen. Conrad Appel (R-Metairie). Key votes are coming up at the Capitol in the near future.
    The LCCB says the legislation would give “students stuck in failing public schools an opportunity to attend a quality private school.”
