I joined Stand for Children Louisiana to advocate for my two children. My kids attend East Baton Rouge Parish schools, and they are in pre-k and sixth grade. With the help of Stand for Children Louisiana, I have been able to advocate for my children and fight, so they receive the same high-quality education as kids in other parishes.
I am hopeful that with the new leadership of Dr. Narcisse and his team, our children will receive the resources and quality of education they deserve.
As a member of Stand for Children Louisiana, I want to continue to advocate for better results for all our children. Stand for Children Louisiana understands the importance of parent voice and continuous improvement in our schools. As a foster parent, I know how important disciplinary reform is for our youth. We need a disciplinary system that keeps our kids in schools. I have seen the long-lasting consequences that expulsions and suspensions have on our youth. We need to work to keep our children in the classroom.
I hope you will join me in our fight to give our children more opportunities for success. Our voices matter and I am proud to be a member of Stand for Children Louisiana.
