La. Supt. John White Fabricates Three Years of Teaching into Five: View His Ed Leader Cert Application
Louisiana has three levels of ed leader certification. Ed Leader 1 requires no teaching experience. Ed Leader 2 requires three years of teaching experience in the applicant’s area of certification.
And Ed Leader 3 requires five years of teaching experience in the applicant’s area of certification.
Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (BESE) member James Garvey signed off on all three of White’s ed leader certifications.
White does not have the five years of teaching experience in his area of certification.
White has three years of teaching experience.
In my first post, I relied on a 2011 interview that White gave for EdNext to support his having only three years of teaching experience.
Fortunately, in this post, I am able to provide support from White’s application for Louisiana ed leader certification. (My thanks to my colleague Lee Barrios for her public records request of this info.)

§ 708. Educational Leader Certificate Level 3 (EDL 3) [Formerly §709]A. This certificate is required in order to serve as a school system superintendent or assistant superintendent.
