Charter Schools

D.C. Mayor Wants More Charter Schools

Because they work


Fresh off the heels of his education reform speech that was met with some protest Thursday, D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray continues to push for changing the educational landscape in the District.

Gray used his weekly Sunday radio address heard exclusively on All-News 99.1 WNEW to once again lay out his plans for education reform, a key portion of which, Gray says, is striking a balance between charter and public schools.

He believes an expansion of charter schools will be beneficial to D.C.'s youth — and the time to act is now.
