Behind Our Region's Education Headlines

From Title IX spending to later start times for high school students, we explore education issues in our region.

A number of education issues are making headlines in our region. D.C. agreed to address claims that girls are getting short shrift when it comes to school sports. Montgomery County is closer to implementing later school start times for high schools. Several former managers of a D.C. public charter school are accused of diverting millions of taxpayer dollars to line their own pockets. And the federal shutdown is affecting programs for disadvantaged students, including Head Start. We explore news from our region's schools.
