Schools - finally - in NOLA

So – it begins at last: Algiers charter schools open

In the face of all the terrible destruction, this chance to re-create NOLA’s school system is possibly the brightest star shining right now. I’m sure that all parents – particularly those wondering whether they can come back – will be watching the new schools carefully.

It’s hard to avoid being hopeful, and I wish them well, because good news has been a bit hard to come by for Orleans Parish.

Update: Dec 15 - NOLA.com has more detail here.
