Topic - William Lockridge
Memorial and funeral services for D.C. Board of Education member William Lockridge, who died Jan. 12 at George Washington University Hospital after a stroke, are scheduled for Thursday at the Temple Praise in Southeast Washington.
Unlike annoying activists who pimp causes for fame, political fortune or to rid themselves of spiritual guilt, William Lockridge long championed the need to develop human capital.
"I would be concerned enough to ... at least hold a hearing and ask parents to respond to any of the items they would have concerns with," said Mr. Lockridge, who represents Wards 7 and 8 on the school board.
When city leaders dismantled and restructured the school board — the District's first elected body, predating the 1973 D.C. home rule law — William said residents should have the right to "elect their own leaders."
