More on the Lawsuit That Could Oust La. Ed Supt. John White



On May 30, 2017, Louisiana teacher Ganey Arsement and several other Louisiana residents filed a lawsuit against Louisiana education superintendent John White and White’s “boss,” the Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (BESE), for failing to follow the necessary procedures mandated by law for the reappointment of White to a second term.
  
Ganey Arsement
In short, BESE was supposed to formally re-nominate White for a second term in time for the Louisiana Senate to hold a confirmation hearing by the end of the second regular legislative session following the election of the 2016-2019 BESE.
That second regular legislative session ended today, June 08, 2017. BESE failed to formally vote on White’s reappointment (and has not done so to date), thereby missing the deadline for a possible La. Senate confirmation.
Thus, the La. Senate is supposed to inform BESE that the position of Louisiana superintendent of education is officially vacated.
If the La. Senate sends BESE official notice of the vacancy, then Arsement et al.’s lawsuit becomes unnecessary. We’ll see.
Arsement sent me pictures of the 10-page lawsuit. (The only copy he has as of this writing is a paper copy.) I have included the 10 pictures, one of each lawsuit page, at More on the Lawsuit That Could Oust La. Ed Supt. John White | deutsch29:
