Louisiana State Superintendent often expresses his contempt for the teachers he supervises.
When news came out that the rate of teacher retirements spiked, and teachers said they were leaving because of White’s punitive assessment system, White claimed that those who were leaving were the worst teachers.
Time after time, he makes clear his disdain for teachers.
White’s experience consists of a year or two working as a TFA teacher.
A major editorial board suggested that White should exercise caution before spouting off.
“We also hope that White learns to employ the “seven-second rule.” Think about what you’re going to say for seven seconds before the words leave your mouth.
The great teachers of Louisiana — even those who are choosing to retire — might appreciate that.”
