UrbanEdBR is a multimedia project intended to share diverse information on K-12 education in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Through social media, regular blogs, and informative videos, we hope to become your go to resource for thoughtful ideas that can serve as a solid foundation for you to interact with schools in Louisiana’s Capital Region.


Leading the fight at UrbanEdBR is Raymond Allmon. Raymond is best known as Kris and Kaleb’s dad. He is a longtime proponent for education transformation and has been a resident of Baton Rouge, Louisiana for over 35 years. Raymond traces his fight for education back to his middle school years at Prescott Middle School. His path took him from Dougherty Drive (the street at the main entrance to Howell Park), to Prescott Middle, Scotlandville Magnet High School, Dillard University and Louisiana State University, where he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and Mass Communications and Master’s Degree in Public Administration.

He is a bold voice, fearless and a bit crazy… and he truly believes that liberation comes through education. His passion is fueled by the realization that our current system has not been set up to educate young humans, especially those with melanin poppin, in a way that allows them to live liberated lives.
