Education Research Alliance for New Orleans: What Schools Do Families Want (And Why)?

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.
