A new, nationwide study reveals that the American public is on-board with charter schools. It’s a method for public education that has taken over in post-Katrina New Orleans, where nearly every student is enrolled in charter, private or religious schools- but while some see the experiment as a success, others are more concerned about its downfalls. Ten years after Hurricane Katrina, we look at how the city revamped its schools in the wake of destruction, and to what degree the method can or should be replicated locally and nationwide.
