New Orleans Adopts Plan for Charters
Gewertz, Catherine
Education Week, v25 n8 p1, 15 Oct 2005
Struggling to jump-start education in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, the district school board has decided to reopen its first buildings not as regular public schools, but as charter schools. Indeed, the board's vote followed weeks of high-level talks among officials in the offices of the governor, the state schools superintendent, the state board of education, and the Louisiana legislature, where frustration with the pace of educational progress in New Orleans reportedly is high. Those talks also included leaders of national foundations and charter school organizations interested in playing a role in the district's revitalization. Top officials in Louisiana are still discussing ways the state can enlarge its role in New Orleans' schools, but the exact nature of that involvement was not clear.
