What We’re Watching: AEI Conference on Education Reform After Katrina

AEI hosted an event on September 16, 2015 on the state of education reform in New Orleans ten years after Hurricane Katrina. What has happened? How are students doing? What can other school districts learn from New Orleans? More information about the event is available here.

Doug Harris of Education Research Alliance at Tulane University presented research on changes in New Orleans schools.

You can read some of that research in the new issue of Education Next:
