New Orleans evacuee Tiffany Clark, now a senior at Taylor High, said she was floored by the difficulty of the math section of the TAKS test.

"I didn't know nothing on the math test. I think they're more advanced than us," said Clark, who already passed the Louisiana graduation exam.

I think that about sums it up. Along with no comprehension of math, they seem to be lacking in the English department as well.

I look at it this way: For the first time ever, New Orleans kids will finally get a decent education. New Orleans teachers will finally get a decent paycheck.
