Parents and Advocates Renew Calls for a Shaw Middle School

Mothers and fathers and education and learning advocates renewed yearslong calls for a new center college to provide learners in Shaw and bordering neighborhoods through a D.C. Council public roundtable yesterday.

They reported people ended up pulling their kids out of D.C. Public Colleges and enrolling them in charter or private educational facilities mainly because of the perceived lack of excellent center university choices in their community. Their hope is for the metropolis to construct the faculty at the historic Banneker Junior Higher University web site on Euclid Avenue NW.

It’s been a few yrs given that the D.C. Council held a hearing on the problem, and Council Chairman Phil Mendelson hoped the “long overdue” dialogue would assistance tell upcoming spending plan conversations.
