The Advocate recently published an article pointing out that Louisiana’s public education system is 46th in the ranking of state education systems. When the price of oil is above $100 per barrel, the state’s economy is in the top 10 states of the nation but when the price of oil is $40 per barrel Louisiana’s economy matches its educational rank of 46th.
