Louisiana is going #REDforED!

Red for Ed is a growing coalition of Louisiana citizens who care deeply about the state’s public schools.  Join thousands of educators, parents, and community members in fighting for the public schools that Louisiana’s students deserve.

#REDforED Survey

What do you think is the biggest issue facing the public schools in your community?
Louisiana teacher pay ranks at the bottom, #41 in the country (per 24/7 Wall Street USA TODAY). Would you support increasing teacher pay?
Most Louisiana school employees like teacher aides, custodians, bus drivers, cafeteria workers make below $23,000 a year. Would you support increasing their pay?
Would you support school employees in your community enacting a work stoppage or other action for higher wages?
Would you support a $10 per month increase in property taxes, if the funds were dedicated solely to ensure sustainable salaries for Louisiana teachers and all other school employees?
