EARLY-CHILDHOOD learning is supposedly a top priority of Mayor Muriel E. Bowser’s (D) administration. So why on earth are city officials displacing and forcing the closure of a high-performing preschool that serves at-risk 3- and 4-year-olds in a part of the city where there is a shortage of prekindergarten seats? The sorry answer is that the school is a public charter, and making space for charters is not a priority for an administration that seems to be increasingly wary of them.
