Tulane Reading Project Keynote Lecture

Award-winning education reporter Sarah Carr will lecture about her book, Hope Against Hope: Three Schools, One City, and the Struggle to Educate America's Children, this year's Tulane Reading Project selection. Hope Against Hope is "the story of New Orleans schools after Hurricane Katrina, through the eyes of those most affected by the dramatic education changes."

Carr has written about education for the last twelve years, reporting on the growth in online learning in higher education, the battle over vouchers and charter schools in urban districts, and the struggle to educate China's massive population of migrant children. Her work has been honored with numerous national awards and fellowships, most recently a Spencer Education Journalism Fellowship at Columbia University. She has also contributed to the New York Times, the Hechiniger Report, the Times-Picayune of New Orleans, Time.com, and several other news outlets.
