Five members of the state House and two senators got “F’s” on their voting records, according to the Louisiana Association of Educators.
The LAE is one of two teacher unions in the state, and the group used 10 votes and other issues to come up with its list.
Those given failing marks include state Reps. Lance Harris, R-Lafayette; Stuart Bishop, R-Lafayette, Lenar Whitney, R-Houma; Scott Simon, R-Abita Springs and Nancy Landry, R-Lafayette.
Senators on the “F” list include Senate Education Committee Chairman Conrad Appel, R-Metairie and Sen. Jack Donahue, R-Mandeville.
Another 34 House members were given an “A” plus as well as five senators.
Bills that LAE officials used to grade lawmakers include measures to force a review of Common Core, revamp how students are tested on the standards and changed funding for charter schools.
The group said behind-the-scenes advocacy, access and committee votes were also considered.
