My thoughts on the La Progress Education Forum

I wanted to share with you all about my attendance at the Louisiana Progress Education Forum in Lafayette Monday Night, what took place was a prime example of good leadership in our public schools. Panelist member Sandy Billideaux who is the assistant superentident for Lafayette Parish Schools filling in for Super Pat Cooper mentioned that everyone should have a “skin in the game” meaning to take a public interest in education.

I am not going to go into a major rant about education issues but I am very concerned about the City of Abbeville Schools within the Vermilion Parish School System because there is not one school that has a passing grade. My concern is Abbeville is fixing to become like New Roads because New Roads is one of the few parish seats in the state that does not have a Public High School.

It would be a major tragedy for Abbeville if Abbeville High, the flagship school of the parish had to cease operations and just like what happened to New Roads in 1980, Abbeville would not have a flagship School, time to take a stand.


About watchdogofladisability

Hi, My name is Jason W. Weill and I am a 2007 graduate of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette as well as an individual diagnosed with Asbergers Syndrome, an Autism Spectrum Disorder. I created Watchdog of La Disability because I am a non-partisan watchdog who not only holds our leaders accountable in Baton Rouge but also turns heads. Watchdog of La Disability will also focus on important Disability related issues using the most powerful media sources in TV,Print, and Radio: KTBS-TV Shreveport, WWL AM/FM/TV New Orleans along with the Times Picayune Newspaper and WAFB-TV along with the Advocate in Baton Rouge. I hope you find my Watchdog side to be of use because being a watchdog means being fair to both sides and holding anyone accountable who decides to take avantage of the disabled.
