Statement on Lusher Name Change

On September 30, 2021, Advocates for Arts Based Education, the board that governs Lusher Charter School, voted to change the name of the school and set forth a process for selecting a new name. United Teachers of New Orleans fully supports changing the name of Lusher Charter School. However, we are concerned that the process adopted is designed to silence the community and to ensure that no meaningful change is made. In order to remedy the situation, Advocates for Arts Based Education must slow down the name selection process and enact ways for meaningful community participation in the decision making process.
