To the Editor,
While I applaud Leigh Davis' attempt to shed light on the subject of charter schools in New Orleans ("Coming to a City Near You"), I regret the fact that the subject matter was not thoroughly researched nor backed up. For concerned educators to make comments and an educational based writer to print an incomplete article shows serious irresponsibility. This is merely inflammatory and not really informative.
The next time that you would like to have one of your writers truly write about the transition of the public schools system, interview proponents from both sides. Charters are not evil, nor are they the answer to the failing school system that is America, not just New Orleans. Charters here are an opportunity for the community to operate the schools with true educational leadership and cultural interjection.
