I have worked as an education writer for the last 12 years. My new 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.

Before starting work on the book, I was a staff writer at the Chronicle of Higher Education, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, and the New Orleans Times-Picayune. I have contributed to the New York Times, the Hechinger Report, New Orleans public radio, Time.com, the Columbia Journalism Review, Next City magazine, the Daily Beast, School Administrator magazine, and several other news outlets.
