About South Louisiana

Out of 50 states, Louisiana ranks last in the number of fourth graders who read at the proficient level on the national skills test, NAEP. Yet South Louisiana corps members and students are proving every year that with hard work, determination, and partnerships across the community, all South Louisiana students can achieve at the highest levels. 

From students winning competitive scholarships, to innovative new models of schools, to the influx of leaders coming to work in our community, we’re seeing strong progress in South Louisiana. Inspired by our students' determination, and with the knowledge that change is possible, we are working to pick up speed, grow our numbers, and play a larger role in the movement to ensure all kids in South Louisiana have access to an excellent education.

Michael, a South Louisiana native, joined Teach For America and taught as part of the founding staff at Mott Hall Bronx
