Gov. Bobby Jindal won his bid to overhaul the shape of public education in Louisiana, when the House gave final legislative passage Thursday to the governor’s centerpiece proposals.
The bills will make it tougher for teachers to reach the job protection called tenure, establish a statewide voucher program for private school tuition, make it easier to create charter schools, expand online schools and restructure public financing of education.
Approval of minor Senate changes to the two bills came in 60-43 and 60-42 votes, giving Jindal significant triumphs early in the three-month legislative session.
