Argument: New Orleans should not be experimented on with charter schools
Jordan Flaherty. "Rethinking New Orleans Schools". Wire Tap. August 9, 2006 - The new administrations running the schools are often inexperienced and unprepared to take over the New Orleans system. "They say this is an experiment," Tracie Washington, NAACP lawyer and education advocate, explains, speaking about the plans of advocates of charter schools. "Tuskegee was an experiment. We have reason to be suspicious of experiments," Washington adds referring to a notorious clinical study conducted in 1932 on mostly poor African-American men without their consent.
