National Praise for Morris Jeff’s Diversity Model in Public Education

National Century Foundation Praises Morris Jeff Community School for its educational exceptionalism and praises its purposeful diversity as a key part of its success in the city’s public education landscape.

The Exceptionalism of Morris Jeff Community School

In a city where the educational landscape is dominated by other charter schools, Morris Jeff Community School stands out for its International Baccalaureate curriculum, dedication to ability inclusion and diversity, commitment to teacher voice, and academic consistency. The school articulated these principles at its founding, committing to being an institution that not only serves the surrounding community, but also involves and reflects it. At Morris Jeff, this looks like a student body that reflects the racial and economic demographics of New Orleans, and a teachers collective bargaining contract that recognizes that the voices of teachers, parents, and administrators are all necessary to maximize success.
