Some Mt. Pleasant parents are opposed to changing school boundaries; meeting today with DCPS staff

Some folks in Mt. Pleasant are not pleased that DC Public Schools is planning on changing some boundaries, meaning that MtP kids may go to schools like the Columbia Heights Education Campus, Cardozo or Roosevelt High Schools rather than Wilson, located in upper Northwest.

Some parents have put together a petition and have also gotten a meeting with DCPS officials. The petition argues that people might leave the city if their school gets changed.

The meeting is tonight at 6 pm at the Mt. Pleasant Library. So if you have kids in the area, check it out.
