The state-run Recovery School District took over nearly all New Orleans public schools after Hurricane Katrina. Soon, it won't run any. It will, however, oversee dozens of charter schools, including 17 local schools which recently decided they wanted to stay in the state system instead of returning to the local school board.
Danielle Dreilinger has been reporting on the role of the Recovery School District for Nola.com and the Times-Picayune. She sat down with Diane Mack to talk about it.
