Video Description:
This interdisciplinary education panel will engage issues of Charter Schools, community, and social networks as they impact on re-imagining education in New Orleans. It bridges meaning between poor African American experiences in New Orleans and marginal populations in Champaign-Urbana community. The presentation will hopefully demonstrate the power of information technologies and systems theory to elucidate the goals and desires of individuals and community groups, all of whom may wish to participate in the democratic processes of rebuilding New Orleans, its system of public schools, institutions of higher education and other sectors such as public housing developments.
