Panelist Bio


Joyce Haynes
President of the Louisiana Association of Educators

Joyce Haynes has served as the President of the Louisiana Association of Educators for three years.
She brings the wisdom of a thirty-six year veteran of the public education system with her. She has experience as a Teacher’s Assistant, Classroom Teacher of 6th and 8th Grade Social Studies, and was voted Outstanding Educator in 1983. She is a statewide trainer for new teachers, mentors, and assessors and a board member of the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). She also serves as a trustee for District 6 of the Teachers Retirement System of Louisiana (TRSL).

Joyce Haynes grew up in Opelousas, LA and graduated from J. S. Clark High School. Her distinguished education includes, a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education from the ULL, a Master of Arts degree in Education from LSU, and she has earned a “Thirty Plus” distinction from Southern University.

Ms. Haynes has exhibited a staunch commitment to advocacy. On the local level she has worked with the St. Landry Association of Educators and held many positions including President of that organization. On the state level, she has worked with the Louisiana Association of Educators for many years serving as a delegate to LAE Conventions, and holding many board positions, including the current presidency of LAE since 2007. On the national level, she has served on the NEA Board of Directors, a delegate to NEA Conventions, and has served on numerous education-excellence initiative committees.

Today, Ms. Haynes is very active in legislative action and can be found lobbying legislators, speaking on behalf of the Louisiana’s public education system and fighting for educational agendas at the capital. With the desire, experience, and vision to lead, she advocates for all children in Louisiana.

Current Topic


     11/18 - An Eye on Admissions

What standards should be used for college admissions?
This fall, LSU instituted a “holistic admissions” process for incoming students which relies more on essays and recommendations than on College Board test scores and grade point averages. Proponents of the move say it’s a better way to identify strong students while opening up opportunities for families not financially able to afford prep classes for standardized exams. Opponents say the move will increase student attrition and could endanger LSU’s flagship status. Examine the new standards from several different perspectives.

Louisiana Public Square looks for answers to these questions and more on “An Eye on Admissions” Wednesday, November 21 at 7pm on LPB and in New Orleans on WLAE.

Louisiana Public Square can also be heard on public radio stations WRKF in Baton Rouge; Red River Radio in Shreveport and Alexandria; and WWNO in New Orleans. Check their station websites for schedule.
