New Orleans’ Public Schools have been named ‘District of the Year’ by Education Dive: K12, a leading industry news publisher.
“The Recovery School District and the Orleans Parish School Board highlight the successes of school choice and autonomous charter schools, all while facing uniform accountability standards. Thirteen years after Hurricane Katrina forced the city to rebuild its educational system, the state’s official hand-off of schools back to the locally-elected board shows just how far they’ve come,” said Jessica Campisi, Associate Editor at Education Dive: K12.
