Roland Martin talks to Stacy Martin, the Louisiana Director of Black Alliance for Education Options about the state of education in New Orleans, 10 years after Hurricane Katrina.

“The concept of charter schools were circulating in New Orleans before Katrina. We’re now seeing the positive outlook of charter schools. All schools should be “A” schools, but what we are witnessing are higher graduation rates. Are we at a perfect state, no, but we’re in a better state. Our education in New Orleans is now on track,” Martin said.

One thought on “10 Years Later: The State of Education In New Orleans

  1. It’s not just in NO but across this country in all urban areas.

    Public schools are being intentionally de-funded. Education is becoming a luxury for some folks when it should be a RIGHT!!!!!

    The powers that be are making sure that our children’s futures are grim!!!!!
