My parents moved to New Orleans 17 years ago and have lived here ever since. New Orleans is an extremely unique city. Because of this, unique approaches need to be implemented to fix the problems that this city faces. My education and the education of my peers is paramount to the fate of the Crescent City because a large amount of the citizens of New Orleans were born and raised within city limits. To be clear: the education of the youth of the New Orleans has a direct correlation to the growth of the city as a whole.
