TOPS figures prove program is working
From the beginning, this program has motivated many high school students to keep their grades up and stay in state for college. That motivation has extended through their college years, keeping them in school and graduating.
The creation of TOPS by the legislature was a landmark for education in Louisiana. It is important that lawmakers continue to keep its funding a priority as time goes by. The numbers prove it is a worthwhile program that is challenging Louisiana students and helping them succeed in life beyond high school.
