Join the ERA-New Orleans Advisory Board!

September 21, 2018

We invite applications for Orleans Parish public school parents, students, and teachers to join our Advisory Board and help shape the future of public education in New Orleans by providing fact-based perspectives and input supported by actual experiences as a stakeholder in our public school system.

The mission of ERA-New Orleans to produce objective, rigorous, and useful research about the past, present, and future of public education in New Orleans. Consistent with that mission, we have released over twenty studies, and held dozens of local events discussing their implications for local schools. Our Advisory Board plays a vital role in our work because they are responsible for choosing which research questions our team will answer.

Our current board includes leaders from education and community organizations across the city, but it is important that parent, student, and teacher voices are also represented when our board determines what important education issues we should examine in New Orleans.
