In 2016, the District launched a public prep school designed specifically to meet the needs of young men of color. Two reporters spent much of the past year inside the schoolhouse at Ron Brown College Preparatory High School. Their work is now featured in “Raising Kings,” a collaboration between NPR and Education Week. Kojo talks with the reporting team about what they learned in Ron Brown’s first year serving students, and what it revealed about the state of public education in the nation’s capital.

WAMU Education coverage is supported in part by American Graduate: Let’s Make It Happen, a public media initiative made possible by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
