has a new report out that looks at the New Orleans school district five years later after Hurricane Katrina.

The report shows a massive drop off in the amount of school students in New Orelans after Katrina, but have doubled the amount of students since the Hurricane. The amount of school teachers in the area has also gone up a bit since the hurricane as well.

107 low-performing OPSB schools where moved over into the Recovery School District (RSD),

Race did not change much in the school district after the Hurricane. Whites and others only gained around 2% more each after the hurricane, but were at very low numbers.

The hurricane completely lowered the amount of the teachers in the local school district with 20+ years of teaching experience, but the salaries kept up with the rest of the state though.

Test scores the over the five year period continued to go up.
