This morning a group of D.C. educators will canvass Ward 8 communities to push DCPS to fulfill its promise of tech support for students. The effort is part of a National Educators United National Day of Action demanding safe schools. Calling themselves DC CORE (DC Caucus of Rank-and-File Educators), the local group includes DCPS educators from across the District who, while praising D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser’s decision to make school all-virtual until at least November 6, remain concerned about equity of technology access, particularly for traditionally underserved communities. “The all-virtual option is the only way to make sure students, families and staff remain safe in this out-of-control pandemic,” said Laura Fuchs, an educator member of the group. “The District needs to step up its years-long promise to provide one-to-one technology support for every student and make it happen now.” See Calendar for details.
