New Orleans in the News Again

There has been renewed press in recent days about the New Orleans Recovery District. Andrea Gabor’s opinion piece in the New York Times entitled “The Myth of the New Orleans School Makeover” received a lot of attention and a ton of criticism, and so the same old debate continues. It is amazing anyone still thinks charter schools are some kind of panacea for public education, but it seems they do. (Some charter schools are great, of course, but many are terrible. The same could be said for regular public schools.)

The best comment I have seen on the topic is an editorial in The New Orleans Tribune, which I found via Larry Miller’s Blog. There is no way I could put it any better, so I encourage everyone to read it here.
