D.C. Teachers Take a Turn in Central Office

The District of Columbia public schools just announced that six teachers have begun a five-week fellowship in the central administrative office. They'll be scattered among a variety of divisions, including special education, data & accountability, and human capital.

The press release says the initiative is designed to "ensure teachers' voices are always present in central decisionmaking at the central office."

I'll be interested in hearing more about these teachers as they progress through their fellowships. Will they come with some notions about the administration that will be overturned? Or will those notions be reinforced?

More than 150 teachers applied for the fellowships. The winners receive a $5,000 stipend for their efforts.
