The struc­ture and gov­er­nance of New Orleans schools have changed sub­stan­tial­ly in the nine years since Hur­ri­cane Kat­ri­na. How­ev­er, it remains unclear exact­ly how schools’ prac­tices and cul­tures have changed over this time peri­od. Using teach­ers’ respons­es to sur­vey data from both the pre- and post-Kat­ri­na peri­ods, the Edu­ca­tion Research Alliance exam­ines changes in teach­ers’ per­cep­tions of var­i­ous school char­ac­ter­is­tics and prac­tices, includ­ing the use of test data, teacher pro­fes­sion­al devel­op­ment and eval­u­a­tions, and school climate.
