D.C. officials warned Wednesday that they will have to close charter schools, turning away 35,000 students, unless President Obama and Senate Democrats relent and pass a bill carving the city out of the government shutdown.
"We have a lot of interest in pre-[kindergarten] programs," said Donald Hense, chairman of Friendship. "We added pre-Kprograms to our Blow-Pierce Elementary School."
"Putting city agencies instead of charters in closed schools is a sad thing," Mr. Hense said. "It makes things much more difficult for charters. Younger kids need play space and green space. You need green space for these children."
