Here's a news article updating us on the sadly oft-forgotten situation in post-Katrina New Orleans and public education. One organization, No Matter What (linked here to NewTeacher as a partner) is striving to provide support and resources to the folks taking up the teaching work down there. My hope here is that the NewTeacher community might use this particular post to offer some ideas as to how we might help out the good work down in Nola. What are some ideas? How can we help? I often ask for folks to comment but this time...it feels important that we step up. Thoughts?
NEW ORLEANS — No road leads to George Washington Carver Senior High School here. It sits on no street and has no address. No sign announces it.
