Back to school in New Orleans

Joanne Jacobs says "Only 20 of 124 New Orleans schools have reopened."

Five West Bank charter schools are struggling to keep up with the demand of returning students.

"There are not enough schools open in New Orleans and we're trying to fix that problem," said Brian Riedlinger, director of the Algiers Charter School Association, which runs the five West Bank schools. "But there was no way for us to know that we would have this many students showing up."

It's a huge challenge, but the New Orleans schools were so bad before the hurricane that there's nowhere to go but up."
