The State of Public Education in New Orleans
The Scott S. Cowen Institute for Public Education Initiatives at Tulane University
The 2010 State of Public Education in New Orleans report provides a comprehensive survey of quantitative data and stakeholder opinion about what is working and not working in our public schools – sharing the voice of the educators, parents, and voters. It is important that decisions affecting public schools and students in New Orleans be informed decisions, based on research and the needs and desires of the people most impacted.
The report also offers a set of successes that schools have achieved over the past two years as well as key challenges that still face public education in New Orleans. The report is designed to help policymakers, educators, parents, nonprofit organizations, and the community understand how public schools in New Orleans have progressed over time and also how they compare to schools around Louisiana and the United States. This is the third State of Public Education in New Orleans report published by the Cowen Institute.
