The Baton Rouge Alliance for Students is committed to funding equitable and student-based budgeting that prioritizes directing resources to address the needs of our most vulnerable students.
The School Board should take the lead in implementing a system publicly communicating district expenditures similar to one recently proposed by Rep. Rick Edmonds, R-Baton Rouge.
In June, the School Board turned down an opportunity to offer 4,400 students access to new nationally competitive schools in Baton Rouge.
At their most recent meeting, the East Baton Rouge Parish School Board had the opportunity to offer more than 6,000 students access to schools that are outperforming the state and even the nation on many education measures.
It is the board’s responsibility to ensure every Baton Rouge family has the ability to access a high-quality education in the school of their choice
