    “When nearly all schools are below-average and parents are content to
    send their kids to the worst ones, there’s little motivation to tackle
    reforms.”

    Why should the schools reform if the parents are getting what they want? Just because it’s not what you would want for your child does not mean you should be able to shove it down the throat of someone else’s child. Next you’ll want the Amish to graduate from high school.

    Reform (charter or regular school) to work in the crescent city as elsewhere must have schools that execute (K-8) a coherent, content-specific core curriculum. Then, F to A schools become superfluous to mission of educating children despite their socio-economic status.
