Failing school

with one comment

Louisiana is a state of failing schools. Here is some wild art from one supposedly failing school in Lafayette – a school that has improved its standardized test scores despite most of the kids coming from impoverished families and an extremely high number of children with physical and mental disabilities. They have a language immersion program that starts kids learning spanish, french and now chinese in elementary grades, which is great in a city where most of the street signs are in french and many people speak it.
