Teaching - New Orleans style

It's a bold school experiment according to the Times-Picayne.   Or just maybe another indication of how poor the judgement of school administrators and teachers is in New Orleans.    Especially when it involves asking William Jefferson, D-LA, the indicted congressman, to speak at a high school class. It's a bigger picture to the Times-Picayne, though.
This week's teach-off highlights a newfound openness not just at John McDonogh but also in the Recovery District, which has given broad autonomy to principals at the 17 state-run schools.
It beats teaching. As the 2006 (GEE) Graduation Exit Examination results for McDonogh Senior High School shows. (Be sure to click on GEE to see what the scores mean.)
