A Louisiana lawmaker says he's disappointed that the state's top education officials have not
moved faster to implement a new high school curriculum and diploma.
Rep. Jim Fannin, a Jonesboro Democrat, scolded members of the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education on Tuesday. Fannin said he's disappointed that the board and the Department of Education have not moved faster in putting together the new curriculum intended to train poorly performing students for blue-collar careers.
Several board members said there are too many details still unresolved. The board then voted to defer the matter until December.
