CMOs and New Non-Profits

The New Orleans school reforms turned much of the control over major decisions over to a large number of non-profit organizations, including charter management organizations (CMOs) and many others. How do CMOs work differently than traditional school districts, and make different choices? How does the small size of CMOs relative to districts affect those decisions?
