A Conversation With Kaya Henderson
We speak with the District's Schools Chancellor about the results of this year's DC CAS standardized tests, as well as her plans for the future of the public school system, including the goal of more coordination between regular public schools and charter schools. She will also address this year's controversial school closures, the timeline of planned boundary changes, plans to address truancy and other issues facing D.C. public schools.
D.C. Public Schools Chancellor Kaya Henderson responds to listener questions that didn't get answered on-air. She talks about improving the number of advanced learners, evaluating success beyond standardized tests and the misconceptions behind summer school.
