UTNO Endorses Highly Qualified Candidates for Orleans Parish School Board

    AFT Local 527, the United Teachers of New Orleans, takes every election seriously. UTNO’s core values are education, democracy, and justice—all of which converge on election day, particularly for school board elections. The decisions made by school board members can shape the landscape of this city’s system of schools to improve the quality of education, give school constituents a greater voice, and ensure that all students are treated justly, celebrated for who they are, and provided equitable pathways to success after graduation.
