I have worked as an education journalist for the last 14 years. My book, Hope Against Hope, tells the story of the New Orleans schools after Hurricane Katrina through the eyes of those most affected by the dramatic education changes.

I now lead an education reporting fellowship at Columbia Graduate School of Journalism and serve as a contributing editor at the Hechinger Report. I have contributed to the New York Times, the Nation, the Wilson Quarterly, Next City magazine, New Orleans public radio and several other news outlets. My print and radio reporting has won numerous national and regional awards, including from the Education Writers Association. Please contact me at sarah_carr8@yahoo.com with any questions.
