Louisiana students are bright and ambitious but when it comes to nation-wide scholarships and college admissions, Louisiana students are not able to compete on a level playing field with our 7 point grading scale. Establishing a new system will enable our students to compete nationally and will also improve Louisiana's national education rankings.
Establishing mental health educational programs and improving professional support to Louisiana students promotes student mental health and school safety.
Higher education funding for the Louisiana TOPS program provides our students with more job opportunities, higher wages and job security. Our community also benefits from TOPS by improving our economy.
