Schneider Exposes White's Muddying the Narrative on ACT Scores
How is Louisiana Doing with the Achievement Gap?
I wondered how Louisiana was doing in narrowing the achievement gap based on the PARCC-like test administered in the Spring of 2015, so I sent a public records request to White requesting the required data for the comparisons. That request was sent on January 20, and receipt was acknowledged by LDOE attorney, Millet on January 21. State public records law requires that public records be produced immediately, but at least within 5 days. So the response to my request is already overdue. Any violation of this timeline provides that the custodian of public records (that's John White) be penalized for any legal expenses when a citizen of Louisiana files a lawsuit seeking such overdue records. In addition the law allows for penalties of $100 per day for any delays in producing records.
