|Looking beyond EBRPSS|
An office manager for inoLECT and mother of two, Lori Fry supports a proposed breakaway school district for the southeastern portion of East Baton Rouge Parish. As proposed, such a district would include Jefferson Terrace Elementary, Southeast Middle School, Woodlawn High School and others.
Why are you in favor of a new school district being carved out of the East Baton Rouge Parish School System?
Our current school system is failing, and our children deserve a chance.
What would you say to parents who hold the opposing view?
The new school system would give every child the chance to obtain a magnet school education.
Are you a member of Local Schools for Local Children?
No. I am a concerned parent recognizing that the EBRP School District has failed our children. Community schools have a proven success record.
How would a new district affect student safety?
A community school system with strong partnerships among parents, teachers and principals, coupled with support and autonomy of the teacher and principal, can only lead to greater discipline. A unified and functional school board that supports the school system instead of its own agenda makes for a productive, safe and successful school system.
With a community-based school system, with strong partnerships between the teachers and principals, a functioning school board and a school system with the ability to quickly and effectively adjust to meet the needs of our children.
How will this new district be different from your current public school experience?
All children will be able to go to their neighborhood school.
When comparing current public schools to the proposed district, what improvements do you hope to see?
That there will be a need for more schools due to a population increase in the selected area.
