Opinion I As D.C. tightens its fiscal belt, we must not squeeze students

The nonprofit I lead, Education Reform Now-DC, has joined other education advocates in calling for greater resources and flexibility for D.C. schools in response to this crisis. Our requests are straightforward: increase overall funding, increase funding for at-risk students, expand programs that provide mental-health and wellness services for students and families, and commit to smart, innovative policies that maximize the use of our publicly owned buildings for the benefit of public-school students.
