WaPo Editorial Board Weighs In

Following Michael Herrity's excellent article, the important issue of how we can work to increase socioeconomic diversity in Arlington public schools continues to gain momentum.  Just this morning,  the WaPo Editorial Board, weighed in on the issue of socioeconomic diversity issues here in Arlington.

In total, this is a lot of great press. Thank you to your advocacy efforts and weighing in where you can. This important conversation will continue with upcoming changes the SB is considering in the Spring.

We encourage you all to become involved.

The first link below is the update to the petition, the second is the editorial, and the third is a recent podcast from Slate highlighting this issue:
