At-Large D.C. Councilmember David Grosso (I) joins us to talk about the investigation of Ballou High School graduation rates, and the new proof of residency requirements for homeless families.

Locals have been playing regular pickup soccer games at Harriet Tubman Elementary in Columbia Heights for years, but the semi-organized groups had never formalized their use of the field with a permit. As the neighborhood has changed, other groups have laid claim to the space, including a bocce club, and more recently, a private soccer league. We explore the challenge of fairly allocating recreation space in a changing city.
