Hinton, M. (2017, November 07). Louisiana Releases New Tool to Help Parents Find Good Early-Learning Options.

The state Department of Education released an interactive, online tool Tuesday known as the Louisiana School Finder. It’s designed to help families find and evaluate both child-care centers and K-12 schools. State Superintendent of Education John White said the tool is an important step in closing the gap between early-learning programs and K-12 education. “It’s time that we stop accepting the fragmentation of these programs and understand that they really are part of one comprehensive education system, and we should be reporting their results.
