Louisiana has received recent attention for some of its new education policies and promising early results. In this video, RAND researchers Julia Kaufman, Shelly Culbertson, and Jill Cannon provide an in-depth description of Louisiana’s approach to improving student outcomes since 2012.
The researchers examine how the state has used various policy levers — including mandates, resource alignment, incentives, and communication and planning processes — to pursue reform strategies in four areas: early childhood education, K–12 academics, K–12 teacher preparation, and graduation pathways.
