Funding Public Schools in the United States and Indian Country is a must read for any educator, political leader and parent. Learn innovative new ways to fund K-12 education from thought leaders who have championed public school funding.

Dr. Pierré shares her work on K-12 education in the Louisiana State Legislature, which led to the implementation of Jump Start.  The high school technical career diploma program allowed hundreds of thousands of students to pursue lucrative careers after high school. Jump Start, dual enrollment, and other key K-12 initiatives are funded through the Louisiana Supplemental Course Allocation and Career Development Fund (CDF), created by legislation that Dr. Pierré helped to push through the Louisiana State Legislature.
