Please join WAMU 88.5/The Kojo Nnamdi Show TONIGHT (April 10) at 6pm to discuss “D.C.’s Graduation Crisis: What’s Next for Students?

What: A discussion about how D.C.’s graduation crisis impacts students

When: Tuesday, April 10

Where: UDC – Windows Student Lounge, 2nd floor, School of Business and Public Administration

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.

Guests:

  • Elissa Silverman, D.C. City Councilmember (I-At Large), @tweetelissa
  • Kate McGee, Education Reporter, WAMU 88.5, @mcgeereports
  • Tony E. Summers, Chief Community College Officer at UDC
  • Pat McGuire, President of Trinity Washington University, @trinityprez

The event will begin with refreshments at 6:00 p.m. and the forum will begin at 6:30 p.m. The discussion will be followed by a Q&A session.
