UPDATE: Recording here —
On Thursday March 12 on Education Town Hall, we will be joined in studio by At-Large DC Council Member Robert White, who has been on the Committee on Education since he was elected to the Council in 2016.
Council Member White has pursued a number of legislative efforts regarding DC public education, including
- introducing legislation to allow students to graduate when rules for graduating were changed mid-year;
- pursuing questions of renovation and modernization funding ;
- attempting to ensure different oversight of OSSE, DC’s Office of State Superintendent of Education;
- calling for an independent investigation of all publicly funded schools in the wake of a graduation scandal.
Now that the Committee on Education’s chair, David Grosso, is leaving the Council, the question in everyone’s mind is: Will Robert White be the next chair of that important committee, which has oversight of the nearly $2 billion spent annually on DC’s public schools?
Join us to find out more!
