Sarah Carr talks about her book, Hope Against Hope: Three Schools, One City, and the Struggle to Educate America’s Children, in which she follows a student, teacher, and principal as they negotiate New Orleans' school system. In her book, the author explores the results of the Louisiana state legislature’s decision in 2005, shortly after Hurricane Katrina, to reassign control of the majority of New Orleans' public schools to the Recovery School District administered by the state. Sarah Carr spoke at Garden District Book Shop in New Orleans. close
