Building Skills in New Orleans

Education Week writer Lesli Maxwell is spending quite a bit of time in New Orleans this school year as she tracks the progress of Martin Luther King Jr. Charter School for Science and Technology. She is filing special online-only dispatches about the school's efforts to raise student achievement.

The latest dispatch, "Building Skills, Rebuilding a Home," looks at week five of the school year, when student progress reports were being sent home to parents.

This story is all about motivation. And it's a good read. So check it out.
