Forum discusses successful schools tonight

Three educators will discuss best practices for successful schools tonight at a Loyola University forum.

The League of Women Voters of New Orleans has partnered with the Loyola Institute for Quality and Equity in Education to present a public form, “High Schools in New Orleans – What Works?” at 7 p.m. in Loyola’s Miller Hall.

The event will feature public school principals Michael Booker of Lake Area New Technical Early College High School, Mary Laurie of O. Perry Walker College and Career Preparatory High School, and Alexina Medley of Warren Easton Charter High School.

Andre Perry, associate director of Loyola’s Institute, will moderate.

Panelists will take questions from the audience during the event.
