Changing City, Gentrifying Schools

Changing City, Gentrifying Schools

The changing education landscape in our region and evolving debates about how to serve the needs of an increasingly diverse population.

For most of its recent history, D.C. was a city that lost residents to the suburbs once kids reached school age. Now as as young families flock to gentrifying areas, schools are becoming focal points of debates about the future of the District. We explore the changing education landscape in our region and evolving debates about how to serve the needs of an increasingly diverse population.
