“We Must Provide an excellent education for every child. That has been and will continue to be my life’s mission.”
Making a Difference in Education… For Our Students and Teachers.
Providing Resources for Teachers and Schools
Kira’s efforts helped get a pay raise for teachers and more funding for schools. She also expanded access to quality child care and pre-K and increased funding for Elementary and Secondary Education.
Kira has emphasized academic improvement for all children. Major improvements include an increase in students graduating; earning college credits through AP courses; and ACT scores and decreases in student drop out rate; suspensions; and expulsions.
Setting High Louisiana Standards
Moving our educational system forward means making changes and investments. That’s why Kira helped establish a process for local educator and community input to set High Louisiana Based Academic Standards.
