Regarding ("‘Normal’ a Long Way Off for Schools in Louisiana," Sept. 14, 2005):

Katrina created an opportunity to replace a corrupt, dysfunctional system with something that works everywhere it is tried: a system driven by free enterprise. We can’t afford to miss this opportunity to create hope from devastation.
