Where Will You Send Your Kids to School?: Figure 1

As DC neighborhoods fill up with strollers and the pitter-patter of little feet, many young parents are starting to think about schools. The quality of the local public schools varies greatly throughout the District, and the rise of charter schools is changing the scene every year.

As we’ve reported, several neighborhoods, like Capitol Hill and Logan Circle, have active parent groups that are pushing grassroots reform in local schools using techniques that are familiar to any lobbying or advocacy group. Many of these parents get involved in local public elementary schools even before their children are school age. But when it’s time to send their kids to the local public option, many end up deciding to apply for a spot at a charter school or private school, or to move to a place with better schools.

So, UrbanTurf is wondering what readers have done or would do when it comes to this option. If you are a current parent, prospective parent or future parent facing this decision, let us know your preference in the poll below.
