Overcrowded schools are not suitable learning spaces for kids and create serious challenges for educators. Working together, we can secure the construction and expansion investments we’ve known Ward 3’s schools have needed for years.
Support Curricular Excellence
DC is updating approaches to teaching literacy and working to deliver long-overdue Social Studies standards. Let’s pursue investments in these initiatives to help teachers grow bright readers and engaged citizens. Supporting our students with research-based instruction is key to helping them succeed as 21st century learners.
Let’s let teachers know we have their backs, by promoting an education system that’s less top-heavy and bureaucratic, allowing them to grow as professionals and respond to the uniqueness of their classrooms. Teachers know their students best and must have the tools, resources, and support to innovate to meet students’ needs.
Ensure Adequate Funding
Schools continue to be one of the most important investments our city can make in its long-term success and sustainability. Ensuring that schools have the funding they need to support all students is essential to helping all kids to thrive and unlock postsecondary success.
