WAMU, the local public radio station in WashingtonDChas been airing an ongoing series of stories they call American Graduate. The stories of are students here in theDistrict of Columbia in both charter schools and the public school system. Although the focus of the series has been on attendance and truancy in schools – the issue of special education and students not receiving appropriate, quality education has underscored many of the stories. In the piece that aired today, we hear how the school system was unable to meet the educational need of a multi generational family and how it compounded the other challenges they faced. Unfortunately these families did not have the
benefit of AJE to support, educate, train or advocate for them. Listen and see what difference we could make in their lives.
