Luscher? Audubon? Hynes?

I guess we always knew that the nice white people of New Orleans would not allow their precious little pearls attend school with those awful children of color. I'm proud to say our girl is at the International School of Louisiana. ISL is the only school in your list that comes close to mirroring the racial composition of the city.

Peace,

Tim

I can see why the educational system in Nawlins is ranked as low as it is. Sad... sad...so very sad. Still the color of one's skin dictates their opportunity in a system opposed to quality education to all kids.

Yes, many schools across the country mirror this same pattern of "white flight" from the public school system. Sadly, with them goes resources, money, and basic concern.
