Today, 455 individuals from all 8 wards and 3 citywide organizations (with represenation from school personnel, parents, and community members) sent a letter urging Mayor Bowser and city leaders to invest in modern and maintained schools.
“We need to invest additional resources now to fix all schools. Every child in this city deserves to attend a modern, safe and healthy building that can help them all graduate college and career ready. When we delay modernizing buildings, our maintenance and repair schedule falls further and further behind. No child or teacher should have to be in a school with pressing health and safety concerns.”
