UTNO lost nearly all of its power when Governor Blanco signed House Bill 121 that swept more than 90% of New Orleans Public Schools into state control--voiding the bargaining agreement that the union had in place with the school board.
In the end, UTNO sought a reopen-first, reform-second strategy that ignored the desire of the public to overhaul the NOPS in the wake of Katrina.
Three days later, just as the UTNO was, the school board was stripped of nearly all of its power when the state took over 102 of its 117 campuses.
