La. Supt. of Ed. John White set to discuss higher ACT scores

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The ACT is one of the benchmark tests students take to try to get into college and apparently, high school seniors in Louisiana are getting better at it.

John White, the Louisiana state superintendent of education, will host a news conference Thursday morning to discuss the test scores.

The meeting will start at 10:30 a.m. at the Claiborne Building on Third Street.

White's office reported more high school seniors are scoring high enough that they don't have to take remedial courses in college.

The high scores also mean more students are qualifying for TOPS.
