In the 2017 edition of our annual poll, Perceptions of Public Education in New Orleans, we found that New Orleans parents and residents broadly support public education reforms in New Orleans, with 63 percent saying charter schools have improved education in the city and 54 percent believing that the city’s open enrollment policy has had a positive impact on the quality of education. Additionally, respondents expressed strong support for accountability changes for public schools that place greater priority on student growth rather than absolute performance. Eighty-four percent of respondents also stated that education should be a top priority for the city over the next decade. Read the full report here.
