Moreau reports on a case pending before the Louisiana Supreme Court against the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (BESE) that challenges whether certain charter schools should be considered public schools and receive the same amount of funding. He interviews Chris Meyers, the CEO of New Schools for Baton Rouge, and Debbie Meaux, the president of the Louisiana Association of Educators.
