About This Section
New Orleans Public Radio covers our city’s youth, their families, and their teachers — looking at the city’s education ecosystem as a whole, from childcare to higher education. Much of our reporting focuses on New Orleans’ unique K-12 system. While test scores and graduation rates have improved among public school students since the city transitioned to an all-charter system, equity and accountability concerns persist. Race is another focus of our reporting. While public schools have the opportunity to bridge differences and promote inclusivity, they can also advance racism.

Support for education reporting on WWNO comes from the Entergy Charitable Foundation.
