A Review and Critique of Rebuilding and Transforming: A Plan for World-Class Public Education in New Orleans
National Coalition for Quality Education in New Orleans
The National Coalition for Quality Education in New Orleans (NCQENO) is an ad hoc group of national and New Orleans scholars and educators brought together through common concern about the effects of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina on the education of New Orleans children. In this document, NCQENO responds to the recommendations of the report released by Mayor Ray Nagin’s post-Katrina Bring New Orleans Back Education Committee. They conclude that while the report is a useful start, it fails to address issues of equity and community, concentrating instead on governance structure.
