Six Public High Schools, Six Years after the Storm: 450 Student Voices from Inside New Orleans’ Educational Experiment
Vietnamese American Young Leaders Association of New Orleans (VAYLA-NO)
September 2011


This youth-led, student-centered research initiative examines twelve dimensions of schooling that local students identied as integral to a quality education—teaching, student support services, physical environment, textbooks, school food, family inclusion, rigor and college readiness, English as a second language, school fees, access to school options, transportation, and safety. Through interviews, focus groups and peer-to-peer surveying, 450 students at six public high schools reported on their school’s delivery of these dimensions.
