The competition (charter) model opens new schools without overall planning — sometimes in opposition to community efforts. Listen for its effects on DC’s Ward 7 schools. Today, 7/13/17, on We Act Radio’s Education Town Hall: Valerie Jablow, DCPS parent and founder of “Education DC” blog, and Peter MacPherson, public school advocate and long-time friend of the show, lead this discussion.
Guests include Jeanne Contardo, co-chair of Hillcrest Community Civic Assn’s education committee; Marla Dean, education chair of Penn Branch Citizens Civic Assn; Matt Morrison, Ward 7 parent; and Jimell Sanders, outreach co-leader, DC Language Immersion Project (also Ward 7 parent).
