Title:The future of public education in New Orleans
Organization:Urban Institute
Short Description:This article examines the challenges school officials face in New Orleans in rebuilding the school system after Hurricane Katrina.
Annotation:This article examines the challenges school officials face in New Orleans in rebuilding the school system after Hurricane Katrina. Long before the onslaught of Hurricane Katrina or the chaos of evacuation, New Orleans' social infrastructure was failing. News coverage of the overcrowded Superdome and the city's flooded streets exposed the poverty and vulnerability of many residents, especially African Americans. This article comes from the series "After Katrina: Rebuilding Opportunity and Equity in the New New Orleans".
