Though a catastrophic storm named Hurricane Katrina altered the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in Arianne's hometown, the academic landscape remained the same. In many ways, it actually took a turn for the worse. School leaders were so desperate to maintain their newly formed charter schools that staff was being instructed to do whatever was necessary to pass ill-prepared students along. In this episode, Arianne shares how she navigated during those especially difficult times and how she was forced to decide, once and for all, whether she was willing to continue in an obviously broken and seemingly irreparable system.
