The article discusses the independently operated, state-funded charter schools that have appeared in New Orleans, Louisiana since Hurricane Katrina. These are reportedly handled by a majority of new teachers, with fewer black teachers than before, who were recruited nationally and are working here for a few years as a stop on a career arc. It is stated that most parents regard the charter schools with hardworking and results-oriented teachers as better than the ones before the storm.
