True and lasting economic development must always be preceded by educational development. There are many pertinent measures of educational achievement, but core to most all of them is a High School Diploma. In order for a family to have the potential to realize their dreams, every member should strive to achieve this foundational diploma.
There is economic strength in a culture that supports continuous learning. CLEDA is working to develop support that culture. It will require attention from leadership at every level, in every community, throughout the Region. The delivery system for Adult Education classes and the HiSet Diploma (which replaced the GED) is handled either at the Parish School District, or a consortium of Districts or by CLTCC and NWCC, with the Louisiana Technical Community College System having overriding responsibility.
