A New Leader for New Orleans

This spring, Paul Vallas was replaced as head of New Orleans’s Recovery School District by John White, a 35-year-old Teach for America alum. White, a former deputy chancellor in New York City, spoke with Education Next’s Peter Meyer two days before starting his new job.

Peter Meyer’s profile of John White appears in the Fall 2011 issue of Education Next.

The Spring 2011 issue of Education Next includes an article by Jed Horne, “New Schools in New Orleans,” about the state of the schools in the Big Easy.
