A couple weeks ago, I had the honor of sitting down with blogger, activist, and New Orleans native Chris Stewart (a.k.a., Citizen Stewart) in an interview for his podcast, Rock The Schools.

Over the course of our conversation, we reflected on the progress New Orleans has made in public education since Hurricane Katrina and the challenges we encountered along the way, as well as discussed what the future holds for the city’s schools.

Among the big questions we addressed:

  • Why do reform critics dispute data that show schools have improved?
  • How has the Recovery School District (RSD) evolved since 2005?
  • How has NOLA’s decentralized school system fostered innovation?
  • What happened with the teacher layoffs after Katrina?
  • Is Bricolage Academy a preview of things to come?
  • Why are so many progressives critical of education reform (and how do teachers unions influence the debate)?
