On D.C. Schools, No News Is Good News
By Matthew Hammond
This past week has been notable in the more than 10 years that I have lived in the District. With children returning to school this past week, there has been one noticeable absence in The Post: No article about a major disaster related to the opening of the D.C. public schools.
In past years, we’ve had students without schedules, not enough teachers or no textbooks. This year, the schools have opened without such a disaster. I consider this a small but significant victory in the reform efforts of Schools Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee and Mayor Adrian M. Fenty. While it may not be improved test scores, it’s a good step. I look forward to future steps down this path.
