Dirk Haire, the Chair of Maryland's GOP, joins us to talk about the upcoming election. And we meet Jamie Sycamore, who is running as an Independent for the D.C. Council.
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.
