In this episode, we have an engaging conversation with Dave Lefkowith, perhaps better own as Lefty, of the Louisiana Department of Education. As the Assistant Superintendent at the LADOE, Lefty worked on the launch and oversight of that state’s course choice program. During our conversation, we get a good sense of the political context in which the program was formed, and how the program changed over time to reflect different objectives. We also get into some of the program’s detailed specifics and look at how it might be expanded and improved going forward. You can see Louisiana’s course choice catalog at lacourses.net, read more about the program at louisanabelieves.com and reach Lefty personally at [email protected].
