NPR's Michel Martin is headed to New Orleans, to examine how the New Orleans school system is reinventing itself, ten years after the flood.

In collaboration with WWNO, Martin brings together a dynamic group of education experts at The George & Joyce Wein Jazz & Heritage Center for live, on-stage conversations around the city's unique charter school system.

Martin will lead two panel discussions in New Orleans. The first features education journalist and author of Hope Against Hope Sarah Carr; Douglas Harris, Director of the Education Research Alliance for New Orleans; and Aesha Rasheed, founder of the New Orleans Parents' Guide

Widening the dialogue's range of perspectives, the second panel includes Homer Plessy Community School principal Joan Reilly; superintendent for the Recovery School District Patrick Dobard; parent advocate Karran Harper Royal; and President of the United Teachers of New Orleans Larry Carter. Jamia Brown and Victor York from the Rethink program, a youth leadership organization that aims to build organizing and leadership skills through participatory education and research, will also participate.

Join the conversation, @NPRMichel and #NPRpresents.

Tickets can be purchased here (seating is limited).
