Making a difference

We make life better for members and students when we fight for a strong public education system. Our recent wins include

  • Pay increases for Louisiana educators, education support professionals, and bus operators. 
  • Guaranteed, uninterrupted planning time for teachers -- 45-minutes daily, or the weekly equivalent of time. 
  • Blocking ESA vouchers that would have funneled money from Louisiana public schools to private schools. 

There is so much more we can accomplish through collective action with your help. Join LAE as an educator today.

Are you a future educator? Join as an Aspiring Educator here.
