DC parent and charter leader: To help students recover from the pandemic, we must support families and public school choice
DC parent and charter leader Katrice Fuller-Whitaker urges leaders to support families and their access to diverse models of public schools in a recent op-ed. Fuller-Whitaker is the mother of five boys, a parent leader with Parents Amplifying Voices in Education, and the Chief of Safety and Family Engagement at Monument Academy Public Charter School in DC.
“Student needs are not all the same, so a one-size-fits-all approach to schooling will never be the answer,” writes Fuller-Whitaker. “Parents need to be able to find the kind of school that meets their students’ unique needs.”
