"Words may show a man’s wit, but actions his meaning.” —Benjamin Franklin
At Stand for Children Louisiana, our actions match our words. When Orleans Parish parents stood up at August’s Orleans Parish School Board meeting and told the board that they would be hiring their own recruiter to bring forward quality superintendent candidates for students in Orleans Parish, they weren’t joking!
In one month, parents have achieved what it took the OPSB almost one year to accomplish.
And while parents are continuing to move things forward as they said they would, the school board didn’t even discuss the search for our new leader at this week’s school board meeting. If actions speak louder than words, what does it tell you when the board isn’t even talking about it anymore?
Stand New Orleans parents are determined to get a leader for their children’s school system—and because the OPSB can’t put its own politics aside to do what’s best for kids, our parents will.
