While the DCPS's slow pace incorporating validated innovations into neighborhood schools is frustrating, the solution is not to create a two-tier education system with neighborhood schools as the educational safety net or destroy the neighborhood school system completely.

100% on board with this. Why are we allowing DCPS to shirk its legal mandate of educating DC's children by providing a "menu" of school choices, mostly private ones? DCPS needs to listen to students, teachers, and parents on how to fix not-up-to-par neighborhood schools.

@dc denizen: I suppose more busing can be instituted, but that's expensive and just adds more stress into a student's day (as a student who would get picked up at 6:45 am and dropped off at 4:50 pm everyday, I sympathize). Ideally, students should be walking/biking to school along safety corridors with crossing guards and bike lanes.
