Edwards education board appointees noncommittal on White
NEW ORLEANS - New members of the state Board of Elementary and Secondary Education take office Tuesday but it remains unclear what types of changes may be in store for Louisiana schools.
Gov.-elect John Bel Edwards, who takes office Monday, said during the campaign that he wants to replace Education Superintendent John White. But it appears there are too few votes on the 11-member board to replace White. Several White supporters were elected to the board in the fall.
The governor chooses three members of the board. Edwards' new appointees have been non-committal on the question.
