New Orleans-Style Education Reform: A Guide for Cities, Lessons Learned 2004–2010

This January 2012 guide from New Schools for New Orleans (NSNO) focuses on lessons learned from school reform efforts in New Orleans. The guide provides historical context and detailed strategies for developing systems of charter school governance and accountability, building pools of leaders and teachers through training and recruitment, expanding successful schools and programs, generating demand for reform, raising funding, and planning for decentralization of schools. The guide was prepared in collaboration with the Louisiana Recovery School District and the Tennessee Achievement School District, with assistance from Public Impact.
