Public school teachers fall short in efforts to recall Jindal, Kleckley

BATON ROUGE -- Public school teachers seeking to recall Gov. Bobby Jindal and House Speaker Chuck Kleckley said Thursday that they failed in their efforts to oust the Republican leaders.

The teachers were angered by Jindal's education reform that will push more students into private and charter schools.

Teachers involved in the effort said Jindal's education laws, passed by the Legislature earlier this year, will siphon dollars from traditional public schools without ensuring improved quality or educational standards for students. They said Jindal ignored teacher concerns.

The changes created a statewide voucher program to use tax dollars to send students to private and parochial schools, offered new ways for charter schools to be created in Louisiana and expanded opportunities for online courses.

Jindal's education overhaul also did away with the statewide teacher-salary schedule and made it tougher to reach the job-protection status known as tenure.

Four previous recall efforts against Jindal have failed since 2008.

To force a recall election requires signatures from one-third of registered voters in the official's district within 180 days.
