BATON ROUGE-  Governor Bobby Jindal got an earful from those on the front lines of education Thursday, parents and teachers.

He met with the groups as part of his stakeholder meetings to shape the legislative package he'll be revealing next month.  Jindal wanted them to chime in on what he should do with his education reform initiatives.

Parents say there needs to be more control in their children's classrooms and there needs to be more good quality choices for parents to pick from when it comes to school campuses.  Teachers say they need more cooperation and freedom to be more efficient.

The governor said he got the message and has three main focuses, which include teacher quality, school choices and district autonomy.

The governor plans to hold a few more meetings before turning over his plans to legislators.
