New Orleans charter school wonders? Don't believe it.

http://www.schoolsmatter.info/2010/08/nola-regular-public-schools-outgain.html

In case you hear otherwise from right-wingers or their Obama Department of Education confreres, here is another take (with data) on the much ballyhooed New Orleans post-Katrina schools experiment with charter schools. In fact, says the author, regular public schools, despite their traditional staffs, traditional union protections and requirement to take everyone (including those expelled from the charter schools), are kicking the butts of the charter schools in student improvement.
