Opinion: New Orleans must keep looking forward in education

OPSB will be smaller than before, because teachers teach students -- bureaucracy doesn't. Going forward, charter boards and school teams will continue to manage the day-to-day operations of their own schools. The remaining roles for the elected School Board and district leadership target what they'll do best. They'll follow a clear plan to manage enrollment, resources and facilities. They'll authorize new charters and expand successful ones. They'll set standards and make sure schools hold up their end of the bargain. They'll help expand early childhood programs and special education services.
