"Office Of Youth Engagement"

"Office of Youth Engagement"

That says enough, but the larger story is appalling: DC public schools essentially drove a 13 year old piano prodigy out of the system. Didn't matter that she was also an A+ student. Shut down the DC public school system, fire every policy maker, and start over with new people. Most especially cut the bureaucracy by about 75%. For starters.

The shame is that won't happen, because in DC, like too many other public school systems, the students, parents, and the taxpayers exist to serve the system instead of the other way around.

The entire system is supposed to be an office of youth engagement. There is a reason people are home schooling: Parents work for the interest of their child, not the interest of the bureaucracy.
