Orleans Parish School Board District 2

 

Raising The Standard of Education

Ethan’s energetic and innovative leadership will put students, parents and educators first - fair, transparent funding and purpose-driven policies that will benefit the needs of all our children.

We can change the trajectory of our children born into intergenerational poverty and move them to a pathway toward generational wealth.

OPSB District 2 Focus

My focus as the School Board Member for District 2 will be to protect and care for those students most in need, as I am of the fundamental belief that if we take care of those most in need then the whole community has a change to thrive.  We will start to break the generational poverty that a large majority of our students face and move them toward a path of generation wealth through education.
