This week, we’re going to be reporting on the toll Hurricane Ida has taken on Louisiana. WUNC spoke with Cassandra Davis, a public policy researcher at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, about this. She studies the impact disasters have on schools, and she focuses on how they affect, different districts and different groups of people differently.
