The Color of Reform: Race, Education Reform, and Charter Schools in Post-Katrina New Orleans

Adrienne D. Dixson, Kristen L. Buras, Elizabeth K. Jeffers

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article will focus on both the racial implications of the charter school “movement” in New Orleans after Katrina and the resistance to it by local citizens. We argue that it is difficult to ignore the manner in which White supremacist ideology has been normalized in the reform as it has historically in U.S. public education. Drawing on separate but complementary research by the authors, this article will be multi-vocal and reflect our positionalities as researchers who are “insiders.”
