About the Client

In the wake of the Hurricane Katrina tragedy, an unprecedented new system of public education was put in place. No city had ever abolished attendance zones, turned over the vast majority of schools to private operators, or regularly closed schools mainly because of low test scores.

New Orleans made all of these changes — all at once. The purpose of the Education Research Alliance for New Orleans is to understand how this new era in school reform has influenced teaching and learning in the city’s schools and what the findings mean for the future of school reform.
