Executive Director of the D.C. Association of Chartered Public Schools (https://www.dcacps.org) Dr. Ramona Hoage Edelin and Shawn Hardnett, Founder and Executive Director of Statesmen College Preparatory Academy for Boys Public Charter School (https://www.northstarboys.org) in Washington, DC, join Jeanne for a not-to-miss Episode 70 of Reality Check covering the state of charter schools in the District of Columbia today, from the ever-present struggles for autonomy of schools that are so vital to charter communities, to the growing involvement and effects felt by schools from corporate development and gentrification across the city. The Association, in conjunction with their campaign End the List (@EndtheList), is looking forward to their chance to make their case to the DC Council for why specific buildings in the District should be released for use to charter schools that have proven their efficacy in closing the pervasive achievement gap, time and time again.
