Louisiana Education Chief to Offer Incentives to Cut Agency Roster
Paul Pastorek, the Louisiana superintendent of public instruction, says he plans to offer financial incentives to trim the workforce at the state education department.
Employee ranks at the 650-member agency will be reduced by 50 workers in the next six months, he said. Mr. Pastorek said the reduction plan will save up to $3 million per year for the department, which has an annual budget of about $60 million.
Under the plan, education department employees who are retirement-eligible will be offered one-time payments if they call it quits.
