"The A-B-C’s of DC Public Schools", Sept. 24

At-large CM David Catania (chair, Committee on Education) will talk about public education September 24 from 7:15 - 9:00 pm at the DC Federation of Citizens Associations meeting.   The meeting takes place at All Souls Memorial Episcopal Church (2300 Cathedral Ave NW in the church hall) and the public is encouraged to attend and participate.

Through "The A-B-C’s of DC Public Schools", the CM will detail his proposals to improve the District’s public school system and address the growth of charter schools.   Following the presentation, audience members will have an opportunity to ask questions.   It is expected that issues likely to arise are school borders, public/charter school funding and per-pupil spending, school security, special needs children, home schooling, school closings versus renovations/modernization, principal/teacher accountability, expected under-six population boom, drop-outs/suspensions, and test scores.

Getting to the church:   All Souls Memorial Episcopal Church is located near the Woodley Park Metrorail stop on the red line.   Parking is available in the church parking lot, off Woodley Pl, behind the church.   The entrance to the Church Hall is down the garden steps from the parking lot.   Doors will open at 6:30 pm and the CM will start following announcements.

More information is available from Anne Renshaw, President of the DC Citizens Federation, via email,
