Have opinions about the Democratic National Convention, or the verdicts from the Freddie Gray cases? It's your turn to talk.
Nearly all of large school districts in the United States run food services for students in-house. But D.C. Public Schools, which relies on a contractor, does not. In 2015, a whistleblower flagged waste and abuse by Chartwells, the District’s food services provider. The matter was resolved in a $19.4 million settlement, but the District still gets its school meals from that provider. With that provider’s contract ending this school year, D.C. officials and parents are wondering why the city can’t provide their own meal services. Kojo explores the school district’s challenges today.
