Green Institute Sponsors Discussion of DC Schools


On May 24, 2006, the Green Institute sponsored a discussion of DC schools at the Busboys
and Poets restaurant at 14th and V streets from noon to 2pm. Leading
the discussion were Darlene Allen, President of the DC PTA and Marc
Borbely, an ANC representative who led the successful school
modernization funding effort.

The discussion ranged from the need to close some schools to
attitudes towards charter schools to the ways in which volunteers can
help schools in their neighborhood. The Green Institute hopes to
sponsor future discussions at Busboys and Poets.
