Revitalizing D.C. Must Start With Schools
"City living has collided head-on with the faded brick school across the street that has boards over many windows and low test scores... Many of the young middle- and upper-class professionals who were drawn to this historic neighborhood a few years ago, before they had children, are reluctantly coming to the same conclusion as Cashen. As much as they long to remain in the city, they say they probably will have to leave for better public schools in the suburbs... Their plans are a disappointment to some city and school officials, who see Capitol Hill as a key test of the District's ability to attract and keep affluent young families and expand its tax base."
