A look into the battle between Maryland and D.C. to host Washington's football team. And we speak to the newly elected Montgomery County Council President, Nancy Navarro.
Guest Host: Jennifer Golbeck
Over the past four years, D.C. Public Schools has touted lower suspension rates and says administrators are employing more progressive “restorative justice” practices. But a recent Washington Post investigation calls the district’s lower rates into question. While DCPS says suspensions dropped by 40 percent between the 2013-2014 school year and 2015-2016, the Post found that students in as many as seven high schools were barred from school –a suspension in everything but name– but marked on official records as “present,” “attending an in-school activity” or “absent without an excuse.” DCPS Chancellor Antwan Wilson joins the program to address the district’s discipline practices.
