WAMU forum on DC’s graduation crisis

April 10, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Recent revelations that D.C. public schools gave diplomas to students who didn’t meet graduation requirements has raised questions about whether the school system is graduating students who are prepared for the next step, whether that is college or the workforce. How do local colleges help students who might enter their classroom unprepared? And how does that affect our local postsecondary education system and larger community? Join Kojo Nnamdi of WAMU 88.5 as he hosts a forum on the state of education in the District.

When: Tuesday, April 10, 6-8 p.m.

Where: University of the District of Columbia
Windows Student Lounge, 2nd floor, School of Business and Public Administration
