This summer, as school sports teams train for the upcoming fall season, public charter school students will have the opportunity to compete in citywide championship games in football, boys and girls basketball, and indoor track.
Recently, I returned to my alma mater, Anacostia High School in Southeast Washington. As a graduate of the class of 1966, who had not stepped inside the building since, I was invited back by the principal, Ian Roberts, who gave me a personal tour of the facility. As the former chairman of D.C.'s Public Charter School Board, which regulates the city's public charter schools, I knew about Anacostia's educational woes. I was familiar with the difficulties in getting the vast majority of Anacostia's students to grade level in reading and math, or even to guarantee their safety on campus. Mere survival was a sign of success.
