How bad were Louisiana schools?

Katy Haycock of the Education Trust makes the argument that Louisiana schools weren't as bad as everyone assumed. In fact, though they had a long way to go, Louisiana scores on the National Assessment of Educational Progress showed some of the biggest gains in the country.

This is critically important, of course, because the Bush Education Department would like you to think there had been no progress in Louisiana public schools and thus, vouchers and privatization are the way to go. They're wrong.
