In New Orleans more than half of students attend charter schools. Paul Vallas, Superintendent of the Recovery School District, is a big fan of charter schools. He’s also an outsider—he’s from Chicago and he’s been on the job for less than two years.
In this podcast, Joe Daschbach, a research assistant at the National Center for the Study of Privatization in Education at Teacher’s College at Columbia University, talks about Vallas’ push for charter schools, his performance as superintendent and whether New Orleans trusts him to fix the schools.
