Local governments roll out the red carpet to attract outside businesses like Amazon, but what do they do to breed and nurture local entrepreneurs?
Guest Host: Jonathan Capehart
Mayor Bowser and D.C. Public Schools Chancellor Antwan Wilson recently announced an initiative to help address the achievement gap for minority girls. “Reign: Empowering Young Women As Leaders” is a $1 million initiative featuring workshops and an annual conference aimed at helping girls of color succeed. DCPS hopes the program will address concerns –and possible legal issues — around the District’s all-boys academy that opened in the fall. We speak to Schools Chancellor Wilson and the point person for the program about the goals and the debate around single sex initiatives.
