NEW ORLEANS - An Oakland, Calif., education nonprofit organization with a focus on recruiting and training management-level educators recently announced the opening of an office in New Orleans.
Education Pioneers plans on training 80 new education leaders, managers and analysts by 2015, starting with a group of 15 new recruits in June.
The group was founded in 2003 and has offices in seven other cities.
John Troy, regional director for Education Pioneers, said that the leaders outside the classroom "support the great work the teachers do each and every day."
