Since Hurricane Katrina, there has been much written about the success of turning our democratically run public school system into system of independently run charter schools. Many people may not be aware of the volume of articles written about the harsh reality of the charter school reform movement and its affect on communities and of course, the education of students across the country. We have put together a very short list from both local writers as well as, national journalists, bloggers, and researchers.
