This paper examines how parents’ school choices have changed over the past 10 years, as the city has undergone rebuilding following Hurricane Katrina. It is the first in a series of studies that will analyze various education topics—especially the roles of school choice, charter schools, accountability, and teachers—and highlight the transformation of education in New Orleans leading up to the 10-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina in August.
