It’s “Your Turn” to share your views about the stories Washingtonians are talking about ––from a rollback on federal health care subsidies to the name change of a Virginia high school named after a Confederate general.
We assess the whirlwind week in education and talk with the city’s new schools chief. Plus, we look at why the once-heated debate over D.C. healthcare has fizzled out, and get a view from inside the city’s embattled jail. Join us for our weekly review of the politics, policies, and personalities of the District of Columbia.
