According to this article at EdWeek (New Orleans Charters Fare Well in Testing), the first wave of tests results look good for some schools. Charter school students did relatively better than students in the state-run Recovery School District that Paul Vallas recently took over. In response, Vallas says he’s implementing longer class days and better PD for teachers. There could be as many as 40 charters in New Orleans within the very near future, according to the article.
