I noticed your opponent lists himself as a politician and says he doesn’t need donations....hmmm. Why would a POLITICIAN not a teacher get those endorsements he’s claiming? I sure hope you win. The children need a former teacher, not a politician !!!
So tonight I went to the open house at Little Oak for 5th grade. Wonder how much money is wasted on purchasing textbooks that aren't even used across the parish? My child's teachers only use them as a resource and since they are consumable textbooks, they just get tossed at the end of the year! I don't think the textbooks that they are given meets the needs of the curriculum they are teaching. Then the teachers have to use their "copy" allowance to make copies of what they need to teach. I don't blame the teachers and am glad they are taking the time and energy to find the resources they need to teach what the students need to know. But why are we as taxpayers spending money on textbooks that are barely used or used at all? That money could have been used for better textbooks or money for teachers to make more copies of what is needed.

Lee Price-Barrios is An advocate for public education and candidate for BESE District 1. Let's make a difference in Louisiana education for our kids and our future.

Lee Barrios is a hands on leader and retired educator working to enhance K-12 education in Louisiana. Lee is a tireless advocate for practical education reforms and an outspoken critic of several current education policy efforts being enacted in the state and nationally. As a mother, grandparent, former teacher and business woman, Lee has traveled the State of Louisiana the last five years informing parents, attending legislative meetings and consulting and conferring with a wide array of stakeholders to develop real solutions to the challenges facing parents and students in today’s world. Lee was born in Baton Rouge where her dad was enrolled at LSU after returning from WWII as a B-24 navigator, but she had the opportunity to travel extensively throughout the U.S. and Europe as an Air Force “brat” always enrolled in local public schools. After serving as a pilot in Korea and then a flight instructor in Germany, her dad was assigned to LSU as Professor of Air Science and she began 10th grade at Baton Rouge High School where she graduated in 1964. During her two years as a student at LSU she was a member of the AFROTC Honorary Auxiliary Angel Flight, Pi Beta Phi Sorority and the LSU bowling team. Her dad was assigned to Taiwan as C-130 pilot and chief of maintenance during the Vietnam Conflict while she moved on to New Orleans. Lee was employed as an administrative assistant at the law firm of Jones, Walker, Waechter, Poitevent, Carrere & Denegre until she married and moved with her husband to Ohio State University where he earned his graduate degree in fine arts/sculpture and she worked for the Ohio Contractors Association. They returned to New Orleans and then the Northshore where they raised three children and she pursued a variety of personal and professional interests. She became a horse enthusiast and riding instructor serving as both President of the Louisiana/Mississippi Dressage and Combined Training Association and as Co-District Commissioner of the Tammany Trotters Pony Club. Her professional career was primarily focused on her typing and transcription skills as owner of “9 to 5” Typing Services, court reporter transcriptionist, and manuscript typist for the well-known writer, Walker Percy. It was Mr. Percy who inspired her to return to school at the age of 42 to obtain her degree in English and Journalism Education and her masters degree in Secondary Education which qualified her for both a two-year stint reporting for The Baton Rouge Advocate and 17 years as a teacher of gifted students in St. Tammany Parish. During her 17-year teaching career Lee achieved National Board Certification, was recognized as a 2004-05 Louisiana PTA Educator of Distinction and served as President of the St. Tammany Association for Gifted/Talented Education. Just prior to retirement in 2010, Lee began collaborating with stakeholders in Louisiana and nationally in defending public education from the growing market-based reform efforts to promote privatization by removing the democratic foundation of our locally controlled school districts. Lee has travelled at her own expense to lobby and advocate for real public education reform in Washington, DC, and Baton Rouge. Her experience, expertise and first hand understanding of the challenges of providing a quality education for every child best qualify her for a position on the policy-making body Louisiana State Board of Elementary & Secondary Education.

This year for my birthday I am making another plea for contributions to reduce my BESE campaign debt. My own personal funds spent along with campaign debts to supporters (I ran for BESE in 2011, 2015 and 2019) extremely limit my ability to actively advocate for public education, teachers and your children.

The time I spend following the failure of so-called reform locally, statewide and nationally, helps me provide information to inform the public and classroom educators about policy so that they, in turn, can advocate for themselves. My travel to testify at BESE meetings and legislative hearings along with presentations I have given to parents and educators statewide require significant $ for gas and sometimes overnight accommodations. If I take on more than my current part time job to pay this debt, I will have to drastically limit my advocacy work.

I have already committed to helping a state representative formulate legislation for the upcoming session in Baton Rouge. I hope to return to my previously regular attendance and participation at BESE meetings beginning January 28. This is a time of great change and opportunity with the welcome departure of our State Superintendent and some new faces of our elected officials.

We can’t let the highly paid education reform lobbyists’ lies and misinformation influence our officials when we can better provide them with ACCURATE data and expertise to guide the power they have in passing education LAW!!!!

I am one of a handful of current and retired educators in Louisiana dedicated to holding our elected and appointed officials and public school administrators accountable for the decisions they make for our teachers and children. None of us is paid for this work and each of us retain our independence in order to search out and reveal the truth. My next campaign report is due to the Secretary of State in February and I must keep this account open until I pay off my loans.

ERASE The BOARD Coalition

🗣FLIP BESE!!! Get rid of Jim Garvey and Kira Orange Jones.

VOTE Elect Lee Barrios BESE District 1
VOTE Elect Dr. Ashonta Wyatt BESE District 2

“The CEO of New Beginnings Schools Foundation (NBSF), Michelle Blouin-Williams, was put on "leave" by the charter board, chaired by Raphael Gang during the inquiry of grade changing, firing an alleged "whistleblower" (Runnell King), and altering public records (NBSF Board meeting minutes). During this time, CEO MBW resigned and she was then "hired" (by Cade Brumley, superintendent of the Jefferson Parish Public School System - JPPSS), to teach Mathematics in a public high school in Jefferson Parish.
IDK (!) what is going on with this "round of reporters," but it seems that there *now* appears an "approximate time" on how long it takes to read an article related to "education." Eeeeeeks! Egads! Oof!”-HS
