Louisiana Teachers Putting Up Fight

Thursday, June 7, 2012 - 6:10pm

Louisiana teachers are upset with sweeping education reforms and are putting up a fight

In a lawsuit filed Thursday the Louisiana Federation Of Teachers is asking a state court to halt the bills that would change the new tenure law and expand the state's voucher program.

The LFT is alleging that there were too many laws jammed in to the two bills.

This is something they claim is forbidden by the state constitution.

Governor Bobby Jindal later issued a statement saying he was not surprised by the lawsuit.
