Statement of Principles

  • Invest From Beginning to End- The future of our economy depends on the value we place on education. A top-notch education from Pre-K through Higher Education produces a quality workforce, improves the quality of lives, and drives economic development.
  • Pre-K- 12th- For students to be better prepared for postsecondary education, we must begin in early childhood. We believe that investing in early childhood education prepares them for a workforce that meets the demands of the 21st century. 
  • Higher Education- Continue to invest in higher education that will increase educational achievement and be more responsive to the workforce needs of the people of Bossier Shreveport.
