BESE asks for MFP changes

Rep. Hollis Downs, R-Ruston, said the proposals have arisen out of complaints about the current system during the last year.
“These proposed changes were all predicated by discussions that have been ongoing among the legislature, school board officials and the public,” Downs, a member of the House Education Committee, said.
