UTNO teachers and volunteers completed their first and second community canvas walks on July 17th and July 31st . Our first two walks, which were concentrated in the Gentilly area, were a great success. UTNO volunteers talked one-on-one with members of the community to learn what they like about the public schools in New Orleans. We also listened as community members described the greatest challenges they see facing our public schools.
