This writer, Bill Quigley, goes to tremendous pains to explain how charter schools in New Orleans are a challenge and might not be performing up to his expectations.

New Orleans is the nation’s largest and most complete experiment in charter schools. After Hurricane Katrina, the State of Louisiana took control of public schools in New Orleans and launched a nearly complete transformation of a public school system into a system of charter schools. Though there are spots of improvement in the New Orleans charter system, major problems remain.
