Valerie Jablow, parent activist in D.C., seems to know the District’s laws better than the members of the City Council.

She knows that the city can’t just give away or lease property to charter schools without following the law. Apparently the City Council doesn’t know that.

Read this account. Apparently the City Council is ready and willing to hand off public schools without going through legally required process.

In one instance, the city leased a property to a charter owner, who in turn sublet it back to the city and is making $200,000 a year on the deal!

Does anyone care about protecting the students and property of the D.C. public schools or are they just an afterthought?
