Another Small Library: Eighty-eight More LDOE Documents

November 2, 2013

Yesterday, I posted 95 documents, the result of my searching files not obviously available on the Louisiana Department of Education (LDOE) website.

Today, I returned to the site to locate documents from 2007, the time that Paul Pastorek became state superintendent and Paul Vallas, Recovery School District (RSD) superintendent.

It is a terrible experience to have one’s history snatched away by those who would also destroy the future.  My goal in this post is to place some more Louisiana public school history back into the hands of the public.

My exploration today yielded the 88 documents linked below. I tried to give them straightforward names. All have been saved to my blog; no additional linking to LDOE is necessary for retrieving these documents.

I realize the links below provide an incredible amount of information.  Read as much or as little as you like. The important point is that the information is here for whenever a reader decides to utilize it.

The documents are listed alphabetically according to file name.

    Hello Mercedes,
    I read your column daily and have great respect for your knowledge. Do you have any info that I can use in my state of RI concern NECAP..This is what Commish Gist is using as an exit exam for high school seniors. It has become a major issue..there’s been protests, mtgs, and even the new board of higher education tried to have a secret meeting concerning the NECAP. CAn you give me any sources on the original purpose of NECAP, when it originated, and why it is not a good high stakes test. I have the Dr Ravitch blogs as sources but thought you could add more…thanks jo ann
