Post article on a Columbia Heights charter school

The Post has a nice piece on YouthBuild Public Charter School, a school which teaches kids who dropped out of high school how to do construction work, while getting their GED. The students have rehabbed apartments and homes, which are then sold to low income folks, and they also get a stipend and child care.

Pretty neat program. Here's their website.
