One of New Orleans' charter schools' independent board cites trouble with the for-profit management team and packs it in.
(I bet its some teacher's fault.)
While this exposes a lot of problems many local charters are having (and that the news doesn't seem to want to cover), it is being touted as a reinforcement of the strength of market-based schooling.
Now, it is one thing to phase out ideas that aren't working. But high turnover, especially in leadership positions, will hamstring schools whether they are public or charters. You can't make gains if you are constantly reinventing the wheel, but we never talk about how to address that concern.
It does talk about how difficult it will be for the 200 students to find new schools, since the best public and charter options available for parents have filled up already.
I guess this is what it feels like to have an invisible hand slap you in the face.
