Research Team: Ali­ca Ger­ry and Dou­glas N. Har­ris, ​Education Research Alliance for New Orleans​Most of the stud­ies from ERA-New Orleans address admin­is­tra­tive data, such as test scores, high school grad­u­a­tion, dis­ci­pline, trans­fer, and enroll­ment. Oth­er stud­ies have addressed edu­ca­tor per­spec­tives on the reforms. In this brown bag, we will present an analy­sis of stu­dent per­spec­tives and expe­ri­ences, which is an impor­tant step beyond our pri­or work. Dur­ing the 2018 – 19 school year, a coali­tion of com­mu­ni­ty part­ners led by ERA-New Orleans car­ried out our first New Orleans City­wide Youth Sur­vey. The goal of this bian­nu­al sur­vey is to help city, com­mu­ni­ty, and school lead­ers bet­ter under­stand what is hap­pen­ing in the lives of our youth by track­ing progress in key areas such as teacher qual­i­ty and class­room prac­tices, school cli­mate, stu­dents’ mind­sets and aspi­ra­tions, and school atten­dance and trans­porta­tion. This pre­sen­ta­tion will pro­vide a sum­ma­ry of stu­dent respons­es about their expe­ri­ences across these top­ics. We will also exam­ine whether or not there are dif­fer­ences in stu­dent respons­es across stu­dents’ race or school per­for­mance score.
