Charter school expo on Saturday

By Bill Turque

If you're a parent, student or teacher and think there's a charter school in your future, you might consider visiting the D.C. Public Charter School Recruitment Expo this Saturday. It runs from noon to 4 p.m. at the Washington Convention Center.

Representatives from the city's 52 publicly-funded but independently operated schools will be on hand to talk about your options. The event is sponsored by the D.C. Public Charter School Board, the D.C. Association of Chartered Public Schools and Friends of Choice in Urban School (FOCUS). The first 500 children to show up get free gift bags. No word on what the first 500 teachers get.
