NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A three day conference with 105 speakers and panelists will examine the major changes that have taken place in New Orleans public schools over the last 10 years.

         The university says topics will include teacher and instructional quality, policies governing authorization and closure of charter schools, school finances and test-based accountability.

         The conference comes nearly a decade after the state took control of most New Orleans public schools following Hurricane Katrina. Almost all public schools in New Orleans now are run by independent charter organizations overseen by the Louisiana Recovery School District. The New Orleans school board still oversees about 20 schools.
