Handcuffs Used as Punishment for Unruly Elementary School Students

six-year-old-handcuffedDisciplining students is often an unpleasant necessity in many classrooms, but what would provoke a first-grade teacher to break out the handcuffs?

Six-year-old Ja’Briel Weston, a student at the Sarah T. Reed Elementary School in New Orleans, was handcuffed twice in the span of a week. Once he was shackled to a chair by his ankle for disobeying his teacher, and two days later was handcuffed by a security guard. Read the rest of this entry »



College Freshmen Choose New Orleans Schools in Record Numbers

Tule University in New Orleans

Looking for an incredible college town with world class nightlife, an unbelievable music scene, incredible food, and all kinds of amazing things to see and do? And do you mind if that incredible college town is a bit of a fixer-upper? Despite the shadow of Hurricane Katrina, record numbers of incoming freshmen are choosing New Orleans as their college town. There are three main colleges and universities in New Orleans– Tulane, Loyola, and Xavier— and applications and admission to all of these schools are up since pre-Katrina days.

In fact, interest in Tulane was so high that the school had to shut down its online application process, and had to stop accepting applications altogether in January. Newsweek put Tulane on it’s 25 hottest schools list– and dubbed it the “Hottest Rebound School” because of its recovery after Katrina.

A city building its way back from Katrina may not be the best choice for anyone. But many students are choosing New Orleans because it’s in transition. The rebuilding of a city is a big deal, and students can be a part of this. For students who are interested in community service, of course, post-Katrina New Orleans has countless opportunities to pitch in and make a real difference in people’s lives.

And besides, New Orleans is amazing. The biggest problem with going to school there may be that there are too many fun distractions to keep students from their work.
