Katrina: One Year Later
Many New Orleans students started the 2006 school year with their home city still in shambles a full year after Hurricane Katrina. The Fall 2006 issue features the stories of displaced children finding a home away from home in Houston—while still honoring what was lost and left behind.
Other features tell the stories of an educational theatre company facing our nation’ intolerance to Japanese citizens during World War II; a high school on South Dakota’s Rosebud Reservation learning the Lakota language; and schools trying to move beyond sports traditions steeped in intolerance.
Altogether, this collection issues a call to action: Look back, but keep moving forward.
