The New Orleans Imperative began broadcasting in March 2009 as the only weekly radio show that focused on public education in New Orleans. The show offers information and analysis on the critical issues related to the public education system. The New Orleans Imperative is built on the premise that nurturing and fostering public awareness around public education is essential in creating an environment where equity and excellence is a standard for all children.

The show’s host, Dr. Sanders is the author of two books. The first, 21st Century Jim Crow Schools: The Impact of Charters of Public Education, was recently released. And The Coup D’état of the New Orleans Public Schools: Money, Power and the Illegal Takeover of a Public School System is scheduled for release later this year.
