I do not believe there is an Arts Academy. It is my belief that it is an underhanded attempt to remove the African-American students from Georgetown community. The schools in the Georgetown community offer a safe heaven for many students that have very few alternatives. Both Chancellor Rhee and Mayor Fenty should be ashamed of themselves. Come on guys lowering your standards will not get you re-elected, to the contrary.

The same fateful day, DCPS’ latest information booklet on NCLB stats shows why W7 residents choose Hardy. Kelly Miller, my “neighborhood” MS, has students at less than 30% proficiency. Major issue is Rhee is choosing to create havoc in a successful DCPS school. Why? When there are schools that need transformation to meet AYP. It’s absurd. It’s about power and control.

My child attended Hyde and I was very active parent-leader. DH has 4 years of administrative experience thus leading an MS is a ridiculous notion especially since she’s not primarily an educator but transitioned there from Teach for America. DH was not the parent choice for Hyde and Wilhoyte and DCPS named her even though we spent a day and more interviewing principal candidates. DH should focus on developing the newest aspect of Hyde which is Addison. That school remained on DCPS’ modernization plan when many other schools came off and the small school was threatened. Adding Addison was our saving grace and it was b/c of the initiative to move special ed students back to DCPS. She should focus her energies there. MS is different and she is not, inmy opinion, the person to lead a school 1/2 mile apart.
Power and control – Rhee was pissed off at parents and Pope and wants us to make sure we’re in our place. She has got to go!!!!!

Hardy is of course up near the sometime Safeway, so these are clearly separate campuses, although geographically not far apart. I’m not really sure of the benefit of having one leader for the two schools, however, especially given the slowed response time to building-based crises.

How will Nerenberg oversee two different campuses at the same time. How far apart are they? Unified? In what sense? That they share a principal?

By appearing at that meeting, she was simply representing her constituents, who send their children to schools like Hardy in the hopes that they might escape the cycle of poverty. I work with several schools in SE and, though it’s sad to see so many children leaving these schools for charter schools, it’s equally tragic to contemplate the ramifications of effectively closing the door on such educational opportunities for bright children and letting them waste their potential in dangerous schools in dangerous neighborhoods. Schools like Hardy represent a last chance for so many children; can’t Michelle Rhee see that?
