The D.C. Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) released the results of an investigation into graduation rates at Ballou High School, concluding that reports by WAMU’s Kate McGee were accurate: students who missed as much as 3 months of school still graduated. We speak to D.C. Schools Chancellor Antwan Wilson about the investigation, and what is being done to address chronic absenteeism across the school system.
