LAE President Issues Statement on Selection of New Superintendent of Ed


BATON ROUGE — May 20, 2020 -- LAE President Dr. Tia Mills issued the following statement on the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education's selection of Dr. Cade Brumley as the new superintendent of Louisiana's K-12 public schools.

"We view this appointment as an opportunity for a fresh start. We look forward to meeting with Mr. Brumley very soon to talk about our common interests, shared goals, and above all, how we can best work together to support Louisiana's teachers, schools support professionals, and, most importantly, the children in our public schools," Mills said. 
 
Mills went on to applaud BESE members for following the direction of a recent public survey in which BESE commissioned to gain feedback from the general public on the search to fill the position vacated by John White earlier this year. Survey results showed that respondents favored Brumley for the top position overseeing the state's public schools.
 
"Thank you to members of BESE who followed the lead of their constituents. We all know that it takes a village to raise a child and forging a tight bond between our communities and our elected public school officials sets us on a path for success," Mills said. "We are optimistic we can forge a positive relationship in our efforts to advocate on behalf of schools, educators, and children; after all, advancing the educational needs of our students, from every walk of life, is critical to moving Louisiana's communities forward."
