Decade after Katrina, New Orleans poised to regain schools

from The Associated Press via The San Diego Union-Tribune

More than a decade after a catastrophic hurricane led to the state's takeover of most New Orleans public schools, Louisiana's Legislature is poised to return oversight to a local school board that was once widely maligned. The state House in Baton Rouge voted 55-16 for legislation that returns governance of more than 50 schools to the New Orleans board as early as 2018. The Senate has approved the measure but will have to cast one more vote next week on minor House language changes. The bill would then go to Gov. John Bel Edwards, who has said he will sign it. more
