New Orleans Liberation Academy is a unique, grassroots, community-based democratic independent school based in New Orleans' Lower 9th Ward. The Lower 9th Ward community, the city of New Orleans and the entire Gulf Coast is our classroom. The challenges our communities face and our collective vision for the future is our curriculum.
Here is also a great video that captures some of yesterday's actions:
As expected, the Occupy New Orleans actions have already proven to be an incredible, experiential learning opportunity for our students in civic engagement, social action, democracy and consensus building. We look forward to continuing to Occupy and engage in powerful conversations and learning across difference.
