Sometimes St. Landry Parish School Board members sound like friends sitting a table around discussing education.
That was the case at a meeting Wednesday of the Board’s Executive Committee.
It was the second night of meetings for Board members and a presentation on policies prompted observations about education.
Comments ranged from administrators returning the public’s phone calls to an observation about state school performance scores showing black children under-performing their white counterparts.
